Hiking alone is a great way to connection with nature and yourself! The fresh air is an excellent way to clear you mind and is safe as long as you hike responsibily and come prepared. Always hike trails that are to your ability to reduce the risk of incidents. Often, you will see plenty of other people while hiking on trails in the national parks. 

It is, however, important to inform others (a friend or family member) where you will be going, what route you will be taking and when you intend to return. If you are thinking about going off the trails into the backcountry solo, be sure to leave your information at a ranger station. Don't forget to bring proper gear and be prepared for changing weather. Maps and a compass are always necessary. 

In case of an emergency, people will be aware that you are out there. If nobody knows where you are heading off too, nobody would think anything is wrong for a few days at least.
