Why Hike?

Day hikes offer many benefits to those who take on the activity. Even with just one hike, you will burn calories and increase your heart rate. Hiking is a wonderful low-impact, non-competative workout for people of all ages. What is even better is that hiking is one of the few sports that does not require much in the way of equipment. A good pair of hiking boots or hiking shoes and a daypack to carry water and snacks to maintain energy is really all you need!

You are a truth teller. I try to get 35 miles of day hikes a week. Helps a lot when ski season starts and keeps weight at least steady. At 71 and 169 and 5'9" I need it. Base metablism less than when I was 18
