Day Hiker

The term day hiker refers to an individual who spends a single day hiking and then returns home at the end of it. Day hikers often pick trails near their homes – this way, they can go back easily after spending hours walking through the wilderness.

Those who hike on one-day adventures don’t need fancy equipment like ultralight tents and trekking poles because they won’t be gone long enough to warrant such items.

Some hikers may choose between a variety of different trails if there are many available nearby while others will stay closer to home due to limitations set forth by things like geography or weather.
