I’ve got a secret to share with you:
Hiking is really just walking.
Sure, sometimes hiking is a strenuous off-road activity over large rocks and harsh terrain.
And sometimes hiking is walking on a calm smooth path.
Either way, in my opinion, hiking should always include majestic views.
There are hikes in every part of the country for every experience level.
Whether you plan to jump over boulders, or walk down a heavily populated packed dirt trail a stone’s throw from a vibrant downtown, hiking is a simple activity.
Go for a walk (call it a hike if you must), keep it simple, and have fun.
