How to choose the right hike?

Hiking Difficulty

Hikes are classified for difficulty based on three components namely elevation, terrain, and distance. Hiking difficulty is assigned a numerical rating with the following formula: Elevation Gain x 2 x distance (in miles). The product's square root is the numerical rating. A combination of these three will give you the difficulty level of the hike. The popularly followed classification in the hiking community is as follows:

  • Easy: A well-maintained trail with little to no increase in elevation
  • Moderate: A trail featuring a gradual ascent with small obstacles
  • Strenuous: A difficult trail with longer, steeper ascents with plenty of debris and rocks on the way

When choosing a hiking trail, consider your experience levels. If you’re just starting, you cannot opt for a strenuous or even moderate hike. Start slow with an easy trail, explore a couple of similar trails, and gradually up the difficulty level of your hike.

Day Hike/Multi-Day Hike

Our beautiful planet is blessed with numerous hiking trails, some last a day while others stretch to months. The longest hiking trail, the Appalachian Trail takes a whopping 46 days to finish. When choosing a hike, evaluate the amount of time you’re willing to spend hiking away from material comforts. If hiking is a casual hobby, you wouldn’t want to spend more than a couple of days while if it’s a passion, the number of days is a non-factor. Remember that hiking is a physically strenuous activity and you don’t want to be stuck in a random hill wishing you had opted for a smaller trail. Do your research, measure your interest and abilities, and choose the right duration.

Hiking Style

Hiking isn’t just scaling hills and mountains tirelessly until you get to the top. There are different kinds of hiking experiences you can choose from including a hike through a forest, a beachside trail hike, and many others. Your choice of accommodation during the hike is also something to consider. From the classic camping experience to a little more glamorous lodging, you'll have plenty of options to choose from depending on the hiking trail. Make your choice depending on your comfort levels and willingness to experiment. For instance, if you can’t do without a proper bed, a camp-style hiking trail isn’t for you.


what is the kind of scenery one would like to hike around - mountains, forests? Given the strikingly diverse landscape, you’ll notice just a couple of hundred miles from our current location, it’s not hard to believe that your choice of hiking trails is equally diverse. From snow-capped mountains to lush green rainforests, you have numerous landscape options to choose from when planning a hike. If you’re hiking for the first time, choose a terrain or landscape that you prefer or are comfortable with. This will help you better enjoy your experience and ensure you don’t tire yourself immediately. With experience, you can always venture out and try hiking through a variety of different terrains.

Hiking Gear

Before you begin hiking, you’ll need to assemble durable and long-lasting hiking gear, which honestly isn’t going to be cheap. Choosing high-quality hiking gear is crucial since you’ll be engaging in a physically strenuous and challenging hike and need to be ably supported by the gear you pick. Some common hiking gear includes premium quality, waterproof backpack, proper hiking shoes, an emergency survival kit, navigation tools, a first-aid kit, and more. Do ample research on the climate and terrain you’re expecting during the hike and pack your hiking gear accordingly. While it will be a substantial investment, there’s no alternative to a good set of hiking gear to ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience.

Solo or Group

When choosing between different hiking trails, consider if you’re going solo or with a group. There are many difficult trails that you cannot hike on alone and will need a group for both physical and moral support. Hiking as a group is also ideal since you have someone with you at all times for guidance and emergencies. The easiest way to meet like-minded people to hike with is by joining a hiking group in your area and embarking on planned hikes. Solo hikes are possible if the terrain is easy and suitable for a solo hiker. Again, there’s nothing like doing proper research to identify if a hiking trail is suitable for solo or group travel.
