If the photos are to be believed, I'd say the Huashan Hiking Trail in China might very well be the most dangerous trail in the world. Perhaps the only way to make it more dangerous would be to remove all of the safety cabling!

Once we get the trail and some logs for this trail in the Hiking Trailhead database I'm certain that nothing less than a difficulty rating of 5 will be a mistake.

Yeah, now THAT'S what I'm talkin' 'bout! :) Can you imagine getting stuck out there in the rain on a cold, windy, moonless night? Anyone who logs this trail gets BIG BONUS POINTS!
Happy Trails!

I, personally, don't think this trail is quite as bad as the one in China, but it still looks like a daring hike!

First person video of the most dangerous hiking trail in the world. What part of "no" do these people not understand? Crying Is this what a world without trial lawyers is like?

You can't fix stupid, Robert. Allow the Darwin principle to run its natural course and cleanse the gene pool. There's another video of a person doing this same hike/climb that unhooks his safety harnass so he can get a better selfie...

On a positive note, you gotta hand it to those guys that developed that trail!
Happy Trails!

Maybe not as dangerous or scary as the one in China, but Spain's Caminito del Rey is set to reopen after extensive renovation. Those afraid of heights need not apply.

Spain's Caminito del Rey has reopened. Based on the photos, the new trail looks much less scary than the original.

21st Century engineering and safety helmets may make this no longer dangerous, but still seems like a thrill.

Spain stepped their game up with safety. China seems to still have a "buyer beware" attitude about their dangerous trails.
