An Overview of Hiking

Hiking is a natural exercise that promotes physical fitness, is economical and convenient, and requires no special equipment. Hiking is basic to many sporting activities and is also a widely recommended and practiced form of physical training. The ability to walk considerable distances without becoming overtired enhances the enjoyment of such other activities as bird-watching, nature walks, orienteering, and even sightseeing.
