    I've been to 321 units of the Nat.Park.Sys.
    My favorite NPs are:
    Glacier (too many choices but warm up on Apgar Point to see Lake McDonald)
    Olympic (do a week on the Northwest Trail, when done go to Sol Duc)
    Lassen (climb Lassen and look over at Shasta)
    Big Bend (too many choices but def. include the Window Trail and Emory Peak)
    Great Smokys (800 maintained miles, but CoolDays knows the Smokys)
    Everglades (yes you can hike there and in the Big Cypress)
    Kings Canyon (do the Rae Lakes Loop. It will give you a taste of the High Sierras, the JMT, and the PCT)
    Grand Canyon (go down the Bright Angel and up the Kaibab but base day hikes
    out of Phantom Ranch for 2 days)

    But hey don't forget the National Monuments-just as glorious as the NPs just one is designated by Congress and the other by presidents.
    You could hike a week in Organ Pipe NM
    Chiricahua Nat. Monument (stunning place but I don't know if you'd hike a week there)

    I asked my daughter and she said Yellowstone with out blinking an eye. I would say for me it's Rocky Mountain, but I haven't been to Glacier yet.

    Quetico Provincial Park, Ontario. Beautiful place! (but I'm a kayaker, not a thru hiker).
    Sleeping Giant Provincial Park is a close second...

    Arcadia, the mountains and ocean together make it special.

    Not being a word Nazi, I've made the mistake googling that before but it's Acadia. No r.

    Great Smoky Mountain NP in the east.
    Grand Canyon or Yosemite in the west with a side serving of Arches and Canyonlands.

    There's a lot of people in Yosemite, but the view---wow---and the backcountry is wonderful. And its the last place I hiked with my dad.
