The Power Of A Solo Hike

Tom Malone/Adventure Tribune

I genuinely enjoy hiking with a fun adventure crew. Hiking on an isolated trail allows me to have conversations with people without the distractions of city life. However, there are times when a solo hike can provide powerful rejuvenation.

When I hike by myself, I tend to appreciate the natural elements around me. I find more ability to absorb myself in nature than I might when I hike with other people. Though I enjoy a quality conversation, I have the capacity to introspect on a solo mission, where I couldn't do that on a group adventure.

Of course, I always let someone know where I'm going and when I plan to return; that's the safe thing to do. I also rarely solo hike on mildly treacherous trails, though experiences like that can test your courage and resolve.

There's just something special about feeling isolated in nature that gives you so much more appreciation for life and people when you return from your solo adventure. If you've never embarked on a solo hike before, try it out this summer and let The Adventure Tribune know what you think.
