All About Hiking Poles



Hiking poles can help make a trip in tougher terrain a little easier on your body. As a youngster, I remember using a long, thin tree branch for support when I was out for a walk, and thought it was quite fun! The tree branch, of course, didn't offer quite as much as what modern-day trekking poles can provide.

Nowadays, although traditional wood products are still for sale, hikers can find a selection of different trekking poles, which include some made of carbon fiber, some that are telescoping, collapsible, and some that have special features built-in (such as a light or a compass).

Some of the more popular manufacturers of these hiking and camping gear accessories include Swiss Gear, Leki, Black Diamond, and Nordic.
