Day Hiking is an outdoor activity where individuals or groups walk on trails during the day without setting up camp for overnight stays.
Hikers are able to access more trails and parks by walking during the day rather than planning multi-day trips in one park or area. This approach to hiking is favored by casual hikers as well as outdoor enthusiasts who might be concerned about trail safety.
An important issue in day hiking is the excessive heat and glare from the sun. Day hikers can pack lightly for their excursions by eliminating sleeping bags, tents, and flashlights.
