Hiking Trails

To stride out along a new trail sends ripples of excitement through a body. Some would say these ripples extend to the mind and aura! The most important hiking accessory is your boots. Well fitting hiking boots can make walking the roughest path easier. Second would be an adjustable backpack so as your load lightens it can be tightened. Then for overnight a lightweight tent and a sufficiently warm sleeping bag are essential.

With these basic requirements sorted your backpacking adventure can be enjoyed with abandon. From daytrips to week long treks, hiking will challenge your body and sharpen your mind. You can include fishing, photography, kayaking, birding and rock climbing as you tramp along.

Walking out in nature can be so enjoyable and absorbing that you chew up great distances without registering what an effective workout session your muscles are attending.

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. John Muir
