The snow is melting, the flowers are blooming, the trails are clear, the air is fresh, and the mountains are calling you! Hiking could be the single best thing you do for your mental and physical health this summer!
I have done more hiking this year than in previous summers, due to being 8 months pregnant. I knew hiking would help me feel better physically and strengthen my body. What I didn’t anticipate was the positive impact my trail time would have on my mental and emotional well-being.
