There are many benefits to hiking with your family but here are five reasons you should do it:

1. Exercise: In today’s world of highly groomed play-spaces, a trail hike can offer kids opportunities to traverse rocks, navigate exposed roots, and climb over fallen trees, building balance, agility, and perseverance
2. Builds Self Confidence: Reaching the summit, crossing a river, or navigating the trail with a map instills a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of "I can do it!"
3. Unplug together: We all know that kids spend a lot of time using digital media, and it is true for adults as well. Heading out for a family hike is a great way to take a break from your devices and connect with each other and the outdoors for a while instead.
4. Connect with wildlife:
There is nothing like the wonder of nature to peak a child’s curiosity, forging powerful lifelong connections with the natural environment.
5. Create lasting memories and a life-long love for getting into the outdoors
