How long has it been since you took a hike five miles or longer?

One of the best parts about traveling around the country is all the incredible hiking trails you’ll come across in each state. Oh, the views! Well, OK. It’s only one of the best parts if you like to hike…

Do you enjoy hiking? If so, how long are the hikes you usually do? When was the last time you took a hike that was five miles or longer? If you’re willing to share, please tell us what hike it was in the comments below the poll. Quite a few people on our staff are avid hikers; we’d love to know!

Last time on a 5+ hike was in the Army with full backpack.

If it’s just to go out and hike then the answer would be forever and ever and ever. But I chose more than 3 months to a year. When fall comes I am on these old worn out feet five miles 3-4 times a day hunting (not sure if you’re counting hunting as hiking). I track my steps on the cell phone that converts to miles.

I’m sure you’re hiking over rugged terrain and not flat trails while hunting, Skip. So I would definitely say that counts. Take care. 🙂 –Diane

Our hike was near Mt Baker in Washington state. Glorious views. Fortunately we had no need to use the bear spray we each carry. 😉

This morning. Try to hike 3-6x/week. Just depends what’s going on.

Walk around 6 miles at least three times a week, swinging a club and chasing a little white ball. Usually cursing a little as the ball rarely goes where I intend.

😆 And yet it has you trained to follow it around. Have a good night, Vance. 🙂 –Diane

If mine doesn’t go the right place after two strokes I employ either my right hand or right foot- and add an additional 2 strokes to my score. 😉

We hiked 6.9 miles this morning and included part of Hopewell Furnace NHS as well as French Creek State Park in Pennsylvania. We’ve since moved a couple hundred miles northward. Our regular goal is to walk/hike at least 5 miles a day. Sometimes other things get in the way and we don’t meet our goal. When you are 74, you have to keep moving…

A “hike”? 57 years ago. Working career: more than that each day, just doing my job.

We walk 5 to 8 KM almost every day before it gets too warm. Very easy, low impact exercise. When we find an interesting place to hike, someplace more physically demanding than a walk, it’s usually 15 to 20 KM.

I enjoy walking. Usually 3-5 miles 3-4 times/week. Last “Hike” was in July in Rocky Mountain Nat’l Pk. Altitude will test you.

Hiking is one of the key reasons I was anxious to be a full time RVer – to get to as many new places to hike as possible. For me, it’s just a walk if it’s under 3 mi. My favorite hikes in the last couple of months have been 6 mi in Olympic Natl Park and 8 mi through Flaming Gorge. Headed out for a 6 mi at Mt Rainer today. I’m 63 and only started hiking in my late 40s, so I’m determined to get as much in as I can while my legs let me!!

the last time i hiked 5 miles or more was with our scout troop from Kinsmen Lutheran church in the champions area of Houston in 1976.. nowdays I get winded if I have to hike to the camp ground rest rooms.

Went to Alaska in the RV in 2019 and took several hikes up to and beyond 5 miles. Since then our longest is a mile or two in length.

Hiked with a group in my winter homebase in southern California regularly. Last winter the weather and virus kept many of us in. I want to get back to it when temperatures drop and I can get out with the group. My wife can no longer hike at all 🙁 short walks in the city are her speed.

I have chronic pain in my low back that makes long distance hiking out of reach. Wish it weren’t so but have to adjust to the realities of life.

Just yesterday we got a five miler in. We’ve been restricted in our daily walking and hiking because of choking smoke here. Yesterday was a bit nicer so we took off for a hike. Our town is surrounded by mountains in all directions but currently you’d never know it.

My wife and I are both avid hikers, but she needs her right knee replaced and I need my right hip replaced. It has curtailed our hiking which we really aren’t happy about. My hip replacement is scheduled for next year, her knee following that.

???? Are you serious! Five miles? No way and never. Maybe 1 or 2
