What is the best way to get into hiking and how to go about it? Also, hiking general thread.
>>1810868You literally just walk. And then you buy things that will make your walk more enjoyable. Repeat that until you have bought every piece of gear you could think of two or three times.
>>1810868Another hiking general thread died for this.Kys
>>1810868The best way is to lurk, instead of being a impatient, selfish, asshole by starting yet another one of these dumb threads

My knee hurts while going downhill, a bit while going uphill as well. It's fine if I rest it a bit, but it's just a really painful soreness that stops me from being able to go more than like 6 miles in a day. Anyone try trekking poles or knee compression?
>>1811727Poles will help especially on the downhill. Working up to more miles will help too. Or try to stretch and strengthen. If you just have shit knees, take an ibuprofen and suck it up...or live with 6 mile days.
>>1811727hello fellow kneelet, get some poles and never look back
