10 Title-Holding National Parks In The United States

park National parks hold some of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in the country, and sometimes even the world. Not only do these destinations make for great hiking, biking and adventure sports, but they also allow you to view one-of-a-kind facets you can't find anywhere else on the planet.

While Black Canyon of the Gunnison holds the title of being the country's newest national park, Yellowstone was the world's first, being established in 1872. Additionally, Sequoia National Park features the world's largest tree; Great Sand Dunes National Park holds the highest sand dunes in North America; and Death Valley is said to be the hottest, lowest and driest place in the United States.

For a more visual idea of these title-holding national parks, check out the gallery below.
