Hiking is a way to lose weight and get in shape. Whether you take daily walks in the park or go on weekend trips to the mountains, you will be burning calories and gaining muscle. International Trails Day http://internationaltrailsday.blogspot.ca/ is an annual celebration of trails to promote trail development, the use of trails and the healthy lifestyle they encourage. It is celebrated each year on the first Saturday in June. This year we celebrate International Trails Day on Saturday, June 6, 2015. We encourage the public to join in the fun and participate in the International Trails Day events.

Body Weight – The number of calories burned hiking depends in part on your body weight. In general, a 160-lb person burns between 430 and 440 calories per hour of hiking. A 200-lb person burns approximately 550 calories per hour of hiking. The more you weigh, the more calories you burn in an hour of hiking.

Steps – 26,040 steps (10,000 daily goal) will be accumulated on this hike.
