Hiking Boots and Equipment. Of all the hiking gear and equipment you need your hiking boots are probably the most important. Good boots give you traction and support throughout the hike. A good pair of boots need not be overly expensive even though you should not compromise on quality in the name of lower overall cost. It is advisable that you purchase your boots from a dealer who is conversant with the standards required of outdoor wear. Boots vary from lightweight for light hiking to heavy boots that are more durable and support the feet and ankles. The features you need to look out for when buying your hiking boots include water resistance weight of the boot the price the toe groove for crampons the width of toe box and the gusseted tongue.
Hiking up a gigantic mountain can be a significantly freeing experience. Walking over a tall mountain so close to nature and surrounded by a tranquil environment can prove to be an invigorating experience. The good part is that you need an astonishingly limited array of mountain hiking gear if you want to go mountain hiking. Make sure you fulfill the following list of gear if you are planning to set out on an adventurous mountain hiking venture.
You may be interested in traveling further away from home for a holiday and need to research hiking parks and trails. The internet is useful for finding the information you need and for other resources like places to stay whilst you are away. Once you have arrived at your destination the local tourist office will have plenty of information available and usually have the most up-to-date information. Sometimes hiking trails or parks have to close for one reason or another so you can get recommendations for other places to hike. You can always the best trails that way. Local residents at your destination will have a good knowledge of the area so you may want to think about asking them some questions about the local trails and the ones that are highly recommended.
We carried ice axes but after the first couple of passes they were used mostly for digging cat holes. The sun cups were one of the biggest problems along with post holing in the soft snow in the afternoons. Almost everyone used trail running shoes except the Europeans who wore mountaineering boots. We had wet feet the whole way through the Sierras from the snow and river crossings and much of Washington from the rain and new snow but surprisingly it wasn‘t much of a problem. We did get tired of the snow and needing to be constantly on the search for the trail. I would like to go back and hike the John Muir Trail (most of which is the same as the PCT) in the fall when you can actually walk on the trail.
