We love to hike and walk as a hobby, sport, or leisure activity and recommend everyone to do so whenever possible.
Obviously it is good for your mental as well as physical health.
Here are some benefits of walking / hiking;
Lower your risk of heart disease.
Improve your blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
Boost bone density, since walking is a weight -bearing exercise.
Build strength in your glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and the muscles in your hips and lower legs.
Strengthen your core and improve balance.
Hiking and walking differ from the path the person takes. Hiking obviously involves walking. However, when you hike, it means you are walking from a lower elevation to a higher elevation. On the other hand, when you walk, it means that you are only trekking a relatively smooth and flat path without too many hurdles.
Nevertheless both are great cardio workouts.
Maybe will meet at this special tour in August,
