Hiking and Backpacking

Hiking is going for a walk, but doing it in the wilderness. Backpacking is taking that walk one step further and refers to hiking while carrying a pack on your back. A backpack with extra gear and supplies usually implies longer trips. What you take with you and how how far you hike is up to you. Whether it is a half day jaunt along a local park trail or a week in the deep forest, hiking and backpacking improves people's physical and mental health and general well-being.
