Hiking involves walking on trails or paths, generally across long distances. Although it does require a good fitness level, people of moderate fitness can generally practice hiking safely. From short, easy hikes of a few hours to long immersive treks of 20+ days, there is something for everyone. Take into account that “hiking” and “trekking” are sometimes used indistinctly. The term “backpacking” is also quite popular in the US to refer to multi-day trips.
