Hiking the backcountry or even just hiking the local hills can be a very fun activity! In the summer months you will want to get up to the high country if hiking away from established trails as the undergrowth is very thick! The grass is 5 feet tall and many salmon berry bushes and the Alder trees make for an almost impassible low country! I have hiked through the stuff so I know it can hours just to go 1 mile if there isn't a trail. But once you make it up to higher elevations the hiking is fabulous! There are maps available locally that would be of great help if you want to do any backcountry hiking.

Equipment: Good Sturdy Waterproof Hiking shoes that are already broke in! All of your equipment should be waterproof!

Theme: Hiking

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
