Are you looking for training hikes to help you get in shape for your next multi-day trek, hike or run?
The best way to train for a multi-day trek or hike is to mimic the activity as closely as possible. The amount of conditioning you need depends on your current fitness level and the types of trips you have planned. My belief is that the best training for long distance walks is to go hiking, but start small and build your way up.
I have prepared a handful of hikes below of varying distance so that you can work your way up as your fitness improves. The key feature of all of these hikes is that they have steep hills which is just what you need to build up your lung capacity and muscle strength. These are all half or full day hikes but when you are ready for something multi-day simply search my site.
If you know of any other hikes that are perfect for training please let me know so I can include them here.
