Hiking will get you a very good workout for your legs when going uphill it doubles the amount of just hiking on flat ground.

Parks are an example of the public good, since they are a resource that is available to the general public. Hiking is something that people can do in parks. But hiking is not a public good, it is something that individuals do for their own recreation. Hiking is not generally intended to help anyone other than the hiker. If you went hiking and also collected litter while hiking, for proper disposal after you finished hiking, that would be a way of using your hiking for the public good. Of course, a well managed park or hiking trail should have no litter anyway. But sometimes there is.

Hiking is a combination of the words Hill + Walking.
