- Wind Rivers--Cirque of the Towers loop from Big Sandy trailhead
- Teton Crest Trail
- High Uinta Wilderness--probably more interested in hiking to various basins and exploring rather than doing an end to end trip of the Highline Trail.
- Various Glacier National Park day hikes, including Highline Trail and hike to Icerberg Lake (among others)
- Various Moab UT day hikes, including exploring the Fisher Towers, and a good solid week or so of day hikes in Arches National Park. Also a few days to hike to and camp in Chesler Park.
- Devil's Postpile to Thousand Island Lakes loop via PCT and JMT sections.
- Rae Lakes Loop (as described in Potterfield's book.)
- Maroon Bells loop in Snowmass Wilderness.
- Mt. Timpanogos summit, including stops at the airplane crash sites.
- Chicago Basin exploration and base-camp, to summit Sunlight Peak in the San Juans.
- Exploration of the White Trinity Alps, to Papoose Lake and/or Grizzly Lake
- Hurricane Wash to Coyote Gulch to Stevens Arch, then back again.
- Summit Mt. LeConte via Alum Bluffs and the Natural Arch in Great Smokies. Preferably in October.
- Chisos Rim and desert loop in Big Bend National Park.
- Art Loeb Trail, in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Again, October is higly desirable.
- Mount Rushmore-Harney Peak Loop--as described in Potterfield's book.)
- Grand Canyon loop hikes--either Rim to Rim to Rim, or the Hermit-Tonto-Bright Angel loops
- Wonderland Trail

List of high priority hikes to make
I love lists. This is one; my kind of "top picks" for hikes I'd like to do in the relatively short term. Short term is relative, though--this list will probably take me years to complete.
