Take to the Trails: Hiking Hacks for everyone


When is the last time you went on a hike? Did you plan for your hike or was it a spur of the moment trip? The difficult part about planning for a hike is that there are so many things you could need! So let us help you out.

There is a misconception that in order to go on a hike you have to invest hundreds of dollars in equipment. While we can’t say that investing in a pair of nice hiking boots won’t make a difference, there are plenty of items you most likely already own that can come in handy on a hike!

Not quite a seasoned hiker? Don’t forget that there are more than 22 miles of trails and greenways within our parks, right here in Carmel. Test one out this week with a walk, run or bike ride!
