How often should I hike?

Hiking Frequency

Taking hiking trips on consecutive days is very different from single day hikes with days of rest between them. Consecutive hikes add the challenges of blisters, muscle aches, and skin irritation. You can prevent injury by slowly training yourself to increase your number of consecutive hiking days. Taking on too much too soon will not only do damage to your body, it will most likely undermine the joy of hiking as a whole, keeping you from continuing the sport.
