6 hours ago For example, a 30-minute run may be equivalent to a 2- or 3-hour hike because it demands more of your muscles and lungs, and applies more force to your bones, joints, and muscles. Shorter, more intense exercise is not the best training for a long-distance hike, but it’s a good compromise given pre-hike time constraints.

10 Tips On How To Plan For A Long Distance Hike

Hiking Lifeoutdoors.com Show details

3 hours ago

1. Set a Date. No matter if it is next month or ten years from now, you should set a date. Setting a date makes it definitive and serious. Before you set a date, look into the right time of year to begin the trail and then narrow it down from there.
2. Tell People. Tell others about your adventure! Talking about your months of travel will make the trip seem more real and tangible. However, do be aware that not everyone will understand why you are choosing to leave a cozy job to live out of a backpack.
3. Set a Budget. You can’t be comfortably unemployed for weeks or months if you don’t start saving now. Set a budget. Look into similar budgets that past hikers have found adequate.
4. Invest in Good Quality and Lightweight Gear. When it comes to hiking gear, you should seek a great quality brand. Since you will be using this gear consequently for a while, a great warranty will save you some money in the long run.
5. Start Walking. Training for such a miraculous feat as a long distance hike can seem extremely overwhelming. However, the only way to train your body into hiking every day is to hike every day.
6. Don’t Over Plan. When it comes to backpacking and hiking a long distance trail, you need to let travel happen. Planning every single aspect of your trip can be overwhelming, exhausting, and frustrating if things don’t go as planned.
7. Consider Your Life at Home While You’re Gone. You should think about getting your finances and responsibilities in order before you leave. What will happen to your house/pet/spouse/job?
8. Find Resources. There is so much advice online in regards to all aspects of long distance hiking and backpacking. Now, take every opinion with a grain of salt.
9. Gain Some Weight. All hikers will lose weight after hiking for months and months. I tried to gain a good ten pounds before departure just by eating more, not eating worse.
10. Mentally Prepare. One in four thru-hikers on the Appalachian Trail will actually complete the entire trail. The stats might not be in your favor but that shouldn’t stop you.

1. Walk Everywhere. In an ideal situation, the best way to train for a thru-hike is to get out into the mountains and do extended hikes that include long ascents and descents.
2. Go on Test Hikes. Test your gear on training hikes before you begin a trek that lasts weeks or months. Image via Osprey Packs. Even if you’re in shape, you’ll still want your gear, clothing, and footwear to fit properly.
3. Learn Your Pace. Walk at a comfortable pace to maximize your miles each day and avoid injuries. Image via Osprey Packs/Dan Holz. During most days on the trail, you’ll get up early, hike all day, and fall asleep around 8 p.m.
4. Prepare Your Mind. On the AT, it might be the “Virginia Blues.” On the Pacific Crest Trail, it could be relentless mosquitoes. At some point during your thru-hike, you’re going to be tested mentally, and you might even consider quitting.
5. Be Patient. Probably the best piece of advice for an aspiring thru-hiker is to be patient as you train and prepare. As you’re walking and hiking, increase the miles gradually to avoid shin splints, stress fractures, or other overuse injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to train for a long distance hike?

Giving your legs some daily exercise for a few weeks should set you up for a successful day hike. Long-distance hikes, and even overnight hikes when carrying camping gear, are different. Training for these kinds of hikes involves much more than simple basic physical exercise. This requires a workout routine.

How to keep track of your hiking training?

Keep track of your training so that you can easily pick up where you left off and keep building from week to week. This printable includes tracking sheets for cardio and strength workouts. Plan all your hiking training and adventures with ease for the rest of the year. This printable calendar can be reused every year.

When to start training for a 10 mile hike?

Roughly six weeks prior to each of these hikes, create a training schedule that slowly increases your walking. For a moderate 10ish mile trail, start training roughly 4 weeks before the actual hike. This assumes you already have a minimal amount of conditioning.

Why do you need a day hike course?

This course is designed to prepare seasoned hikers currently experienced at the upper easy/moderate level for the challenges of strenuous, long-distance day hiking. It provides a group-trip environment in which hikers can build friendships by hiking with some of the same people on each trip.
