The joys of hiking are plenty. It doesn’t seem to matter what you’re searching for, you seem to find it. Whether it be the love of the great outdoors, the views or even the ability to be one with nature. But, what about the benefits? Those are plenty, too!

Check out some of the benefits:

Hiking is a powerful cardio workout that can:

  • 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.
