International travel restrictions may have been lifted, but we don’t blame you if you’re still wary of going overseas. This does not, however, mean you should continue to stay holed up at home, not when there are plenty of safe and socially distant getaway options — think secluded, woodsy areas with plenty of options for hiking.

Yes, your next vacation, getaway, break, reprieve — whatever you want to call it — should in some capacity involve hiking. Even if you don’t consider yourself an avid hiker, exactly, it’s an activity that lends itself well to our current times, in that involves little to no close interaction with other human beings.

What’s more, there happen to be plenty of Airbnbs close to hiking trails, some even with their own private trails, meaning your chances of running into someone are zilch and your experience will be guaranteed peaceful and solitary.

So if the idea appeals to you, consider one of these 10 Airbnbs, from lofts in northern California to historic cabins in Colorado, all within close proximity of some great trails. Go ahead, become one with nature.
