(From 07.17.21, Segment 2)

This week on the Carolina Outdoors, we are going to explore a variety of activities and invite you to join in on the learning!

Bill Bartee and Wes Lawson chat about hiking with Michael Smith, from Adventure Marketing Group. They specifically dive into the details about a piece of gear that is extremely useful, known as trekking poles! Not many people realize how helpful trekking poles are, but the Outdoor Guys and Michael are here to explain.

Benefits of Trekking Poles:

  • assistance in balance with stream crossing and rocky trails
  • absorbing impact
  • protecting the knees and lower body
  • increase speed, power, and endurance

Trekking poles are highly underappreciated within the outdoor world, but they certainly improve an outdoor hike, trail run, and more!
