So we're going to Western US. Not sure when but it's within a year. Most likely off season (September, March, May)
Now, I know a month can be very different from one another.
So here's the deal: we love /out/ing as a couple, but I am the only one who already traveled a bit through California. I'd like some recommendation for hikes (and nice driving roads to get there) not overloaded with people, not too easy but not too long neither (we don't know if we're going to camp or not, but let's start with a day hike for now) with a nice payoff.
Anyway, any recommendation?
California/Oregon/Washington if possible. Thanks burgers!

Pic unrelated but it's a nice half-day hike in Norway if you're interested

Gila County and Coconino County of northern Arizona. It's all national forest up there. Sedona, Arizona is nice too. All nice mountainous driving. Snows in northern AZ too. Not just hot desert like the rest of AZ. West Coast, worst coast - don't @ me.

If you're coming all this way and love nature, I suggest visiting the coastline of Washington Oregon or NORTHERN California.

Pic related is kalaloch Beach in Washington. Beach 4 to be specific. The drive is beautiful, through the Olympic national forest, and has black sand beaches.

Its the biggest clash of nature I've seen. You get bald eagles, deer, and wildlife. The tide pools trap urchans, starfish, sometimes stingrays, and tons of other ocean life. I've also seen whales in the distance too.

Walk as long or short as you wish up the coastline.

What I meant is no multiple days hike. Single day hike because we haven’t planned anything else yet, we don’t know if we’re going to rent a tent or a lodge or anything yet. But we’re going to hike for sure.

Thanks, AZ is a possibility.

Very good, thanks. Are we allowed to pick up urchins?

Give the desert a shot,there's a bunch in california and oregon. It's something you can't experience in yurop

That’s a stereotype! Indians don’t rob me people, they sell them drugs.

Make sure if you want to visit any National Parks that you buy tickets ASAP or sign up for a lottery for a ticket. Some national parks have a waiting list for entry.

For AZ as the other anon noted the mountain forest drives are really nice and near dozens of hiking trails and small trout lakes and streams and a skiing area. AZ SR 260 and US 191 in particular, winter is harsh along the upper reaches. US 260 reaches 9,190 ft ASL (2800m 3rd highest paved road in AZ) and is closed usually from Dec-March due to multiple ft of snow and ice and US 191 Coronado trail sections reaches 9,330 ft (2840m 2nd highest paved road in AZ) and can be closed during snow storms in winter as well. The rainiest and highest elevation towns in AZ are also on these routes. For the coast all I have to say is the Oregon coast is amazing, try to avoid portland though.
