Ten years ago hardly anyone used trekking poles. We used to be very suspicious of trekking poles as well. “Just another thing to carry.” “I like to have my hands free.” “They cost a lot of dough.” Now its rare to see someone on an overnight adventure without them and many day trippers use them as well.

Trekking poles help improve balance on uneven ground and save energy going up and down steep trails. Some studies have shown that trekking poles can reduce impact force by up to 40% on your knees, something a backpacker or hiker of any age can appreciate.

This site is our attempt to share what works for us and hopefully will work for you as you take steps to improve your hiking adventures.
