Senior hikers should choose age and fitness-level appropriate trails, pack proper gear, implement injury prevention strategies, and address their unique challenges to hit the trails safely with confidence, improve your health, and continue enjoying the outdoors. You’ll learn how to start hiking as a beginner, build endurance gradually, join outdoor communities for support, and gear up properly with our checklist to ensure you hike happily.
I recommend the LegXercise Ellipse for older adults who need passive movement to exercise the ankles and knees. It has an intuitive remote control, three different speeds, and reverse directions for a more engaging workout. However, assembly can be difficult and there is no battery option – you must plug it into the wall to use it.
