Great hiking spots in the United States that are also family-friendly

If there’s one thing Joseph Cianciotto is extremely proud of, it’s that his wife and daughters love to go on adventures with him. Over the years, the Cianciottos have toured around the country and have explored many enchanting natural reserves that far too many Americans have never seen in their lives. But even with all their past trips, the Cianciottos have more places of their list of future travels.

Here are three of these places.

Mammoth Cave National Park

Down south, in Kentucky, there’s a national park known as the Mammoth Cave. The actual cave is as fun and magical as the name suggests. There’s just so much in this place that captures the imagination, from Crystal Lake to Rainbow Dome, which makes it a place for people of all ages.

Mount Rainier National Park

While they might need to fly out to get to Washington, Joseph Cianciotto believes it’s worth it just to experience the beauty of Mount Rainier National Park. This has to be late summer to early autumn trip though because that’s when the best parts of the park bloom.

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve
Another great place that Joseph Cianciotto doesn’t mind buying a few plane tickets to visit, the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado has been on the top of the Cianciottos’ list for years. While the place is often unforgivingly hot, there’s a lot to be enjoyed such as sand sledding and hiking.

Joseph Cianciotto is a Long Island, NY resident and a digital media native whose creative chops are complemented by a strong business acumen. Read more about him here.


  1. Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is the best!

  2. Mount Rainier, make the Sourdough Ridge Trail a mini-adventure the whole family will love.

  3. Muir Woods National Monument in California is also good.
