If you do much hiking you may want to consider a hiking stick. A hiking stick has so many different names like a cane walker, hiking pole, trekking pole, etc. Do you need one or two? Well, that’s up to you and the location.
Most poles are made of lightweight aircraft aluminum. They have a soft grip handle that tilts toward you at just the right angle. They are adjustable to your height for better balance for uphill or downhill descent. And they have a carbide tip for rocky or icy ground. Many hikers use the hiking stick to reduce the weight that is put on your knees, hips, and ankles. Go prepared with a hiking stick so you can stay safe, out of pain, and never miss the view.
