Walking can be a wonderful way to relieve stress and enjoy your surroundings. A walk through nature can be especially beautiful during the summer months. But where should you go for the best walks – the lake district? The peak district? Here are some walks around the UK that are especially good for hikers.
What sort of equipment should you take with you?
Walking poles can make inclines easier and map cases can keep your maps safe from getting soaked when it rains. In order to be prepared for sudden cold weather, remember to pack warm clothes, such as a cozy vest, leggings, or thermals. The materials you choose should be stretchable and allow your skin to breathe. Soft women’s thermals can also be quite flattering and are a perfect choice for a hike or bike ride. It’s also a good idea to wear new shoes on the day before the walk, to prevent aching feet afterwards.
