Following in the literal footsteps of tribes, nomads, and cow paths; literally. Hiking and trekking is one of the most popular athletic activities on the planet. You don’t need much gear, much experience, or much money. Everyone can do it. Many people do it in their daily lives and with a much bigger load. All you need is a good pair of hiking shoes or boots, access to food and water, and the know how to get where you want to go. Sometimes you will have a marker showing you the way, other times you need to cut your way through the jungle, machete in hand.
