Hiking allows us to slow down and soak in our surroundings with all our senses.  Sweeping vistas, vibrant wildflowers, tumbling waterfalls, glimpses of wildlife and more await on the paths ahead.  Nature reveals its secrets to those who chose to follow those paths.


Hiking seems straight forward, right?  After all, its just walking . . . or is it?  In fact, there are all levels of hiking and a range of equipment designed to make the experience enjoyable, successful, and safe.  Understanding the planning, logistics, and equipment for hiking can make the difference between a great hike and one you’d rather forget.


Day hiking outventures, by far, have the greatest access to trails.  Most other outventure activities have additional restrictions on trail use that may foreclose certain areas.  This is not to say that day hikers have unrestricted trail access.  With growing trail usage has come permit requirements in some areas and daily use restrictions.  Understanding how to source a hike greatly reduces missteps (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun).
