Explore! posted this list of their top hikes in the world according to:

  1. Length (Distance)
  2. Elevation
  3. Duration
  4. Weather
  5. Instagrammability

I find it a strange mix of short day , multi-day adventures, and even one technical mountain climb (Huayna Potosi).

#2 is the Scenic Drive, Zion National Park. Zion is beautiful — but a drive is in a vehicle. I'm assuming they mean to day hike from that vehicle.

Like most of these meaningless lists, it's effective in getting me thinking about future hiking trips. I looked up the Birtvisi Canyon Viewpoint and Ruins Hike, for example, but found it's only 1.8-km long.
