Event Description

Houston Outdoors LIVE

Hiking 101


Houston Outdoor LIVE - join us in person.  Or, check the LIVE event out online at our Facebook Live presentation.  Both events run simultaneously and you can join the Q&A online or in person.  


Each week we take a topic, drill down as quick & deep as we can, to get you up to speed and out playing.  We’ll take Q&A after the presentation to help guide everyone into outdoor summer fun mastery. 



May 17 – Hiking


Whether you enjoy urban hikes or backcountry treks, it’s important to know where you are going, to wear the correct clothing and shoes and have the right supplies for your adventure. There’s a lot more to hiking than just owning a pair of hiking boots, finding the trailhead or even knowing what a trailhead is…


Topics we cover:

- Hike Safety Tips

- How to find trailheads

- Gear essentials for every trip

- Gear – how to save $$’s and the corners you NEVER want to cut

- Trekking poles; how to use, size, and set up for varying terrains

- Basic exercises to get in summer hiking shape

- Make your gear last a lifetime

- Trail etiquette & Leave No Trace

- Best trails in Houston & close by

Stick around after and we'll take a quick hike in the woods, the moon will still be bright! 


Download the free #10Essentials for Hiking this evening. It’s the comprehensive tip sheet for boots, gear, training, trails, safety and what to avoid.
