Is Nature Calling?

Gone exploring lately? Many people have taken up outdoor activities to stay in shape, and hiking can be your gateway into enjoying Mother Nature. Substituting your gym membership for a local park is a just an option, if you are looking for something different. Hiking is a great way to get your steps in, de-stress, and take in breathtaking views. With a multitude of state parks, you can get started right away. If you’re like me, you’re thinking, where do I hike, what do I wear, what do I bring.

Online searches on hiking in your area, should be your guide for the different types of trails you can get started with. If you are in the tri-state area, I recommend NY/NJ Trail Conference. This website allows you to choose the difficulty level you want your hike to be, as well as give users options, so that you have a great experience on your walkabout.

Getting dressed to go hiking, shouldn’t be exhausting. Checking the weather, should be your 1st plan of action. I typically wear a light wind jacket, long sleeve knit, long pants, thermal socks, & hiking boots. Due to the variety in hiking gear, my go to shops are Adidas Terrex & REI. For more in depth resources, check out this article from SWITCH BACK TRAVEL.


I suggest a rucksack that is sturdy enough to carry just the right amount of stuff you need for the length of your hikes. Definitely include canteen of water, small snacks, camera & tripod for any breathtaking views you come across, and small battery pack for your phone.

Whether hiking by yourself or with a friend, always enjoy yourself. Happy Trails!
