How to use Hiking Poles &the Benefits of using them

I love hiking! Every time when I feel like I don’t want to work out I go and climb the nearby mountains 🙂 Most of my vacation time I spent in parks where I either hike or go backpacking. I’ve been asked many times about my hiking poles- if they are helpful. Therefore, I created this video to answer some questions and encourage trail lovers to get a pair of trekking poles. I love them!

  1. Very pretty post. Thanks! Bryce Canyon is indeed a gorgeous spot!
    The LEKI poles you show have quiet air shocks. We like the anti-shock feature for just the reason you mention, but you’re right, it’s a personal preference.
