Benefits of hiking: Beyond the simple cardiovascular workout that vigorous hiking can provide, it is also a great way to achieve total body fitness because one set of muscles will be used on the way up, while an entirely different set of muscles are used on the decline. These are not only the muscles of the legs, but also the muscles in the upper body when carrying a backpack, and the various core muscles throughout the trunk which keep one balanced on trails that are not always necessarily level.
Beyond the physiological effects of hiking, there are also the psychological effects to take into consideration. Many individuals find hiking through nature to be one of the most peaceful and relaxing activities they can participate in, because it provides an escape from traffic and the various stresses related to living in an urban environment. Heightened stress levels are scientifically proven to be detrimental to the health of a human being over the course of their entire life, and hike can highly reduce those stress levels which is considered crucial for health and well-being.

In common language, hiking benefits are:
• Decrease in blood pressure.
• Weight loss.
• Helps prevent osteoporosis by improving bone density.
• Relieves back pain.
• It doesn't cost much
