GETTING STARTED HIKING

Day hiking is one of the most easily accessible ways of enjoying the outdoors. Very little is required to get started and trail options span everywhere from a flat, half-hour trek around a lake, to a full-day adventure up a mountain pass.

Day hiking includes any hike that has no overnight component. To determine the level of skill and amount of equipment you’ll require on your journey ask yourself these three questions:

WHERE?

Will you hike an easy trail or a winding one with obstacles?

HOW LONG?

Will you hike for less than hour, half the day, or all day?

HOW FAR?

Will you keep it short or go long distance?
