10 Most Dangerous Hikes

I was amazed to see the Bright Angel Trail on the list of 10 most dangerous hikes. Apparently it is there because the rescues number about 200 per year.

lol. They didn't do an experience to rescues ratio screening did they. Just because there are a lot of rescues doesn't mean it's dangerous. In this case I rather suspect it's tourists getting in over their heads on an "upside down" hike in hot weather.
