Trekking 101

Trekking, sometimes referred to as hiking, is an outdoor activity that can take you to the highest mountain or around the local park. Adventure seekers who climb the world’s tallest mountains, casual day hikers who follow a well-defined relatively flat path and active people looking for added support after surgery all benefit from the added balance and stability of LEKI poles. Using Trekking Poles helps distribute weight evenly and absorbs added shock to your knees and back when traveling different terrain.
