New to hiking/backpacking and have completed Moab, Rim to Rim and Maroon 4 pass.   Need some suggestions for a few trips next year.  Prefer 4-5 days.  

What are your favorite must do hikes?

Cam you be a little more specific?  Your question covers a lot of ground.  Region of country, type of terrain,  level of difficulty, time of year, etc.  We can be of a lot more help and would be glad to, with a little more information.

There is a reason why there are so many Wind River fans here. Have a look at SWT's Youtube vid and Dorf's TRs. Probably good to think in terms of 5-7 days though.

Completed Moab? There's a !@#$load of hiking there.

Four nights doing "THE COMPLETE" Teton Crest Trail is one of the best you'll ever find. Don't let anyone tell you to skip the southern section, they have no idea.

In the Gros Ventre Mountains of Wyoming get dropped off at Crystal Creek. Hike to the Headwaters Divide with Swift Creek. Do some dayhikes, Blaks Peak, Steamboat Mt., Antoinette Peak.

Yellowstone's Bechler. I highly reccomend having Dunada Falls on the route, spend night at 3 Rivers Jct. and soak in Mr. Bubbles for a good long time.

Colorado's Sangre de Cristo Range. Up past Comanche Lake, down the Phantom Terrace camping at Upper Venable. Back up over Venabe Pass, Out North Crestone Creek.

PICK AN AREA. Get better recommendations. Have a blast whatever you do.
