Hiking is often a very social activity. Unlike high-paced sports, you have time to talk to people while you are walking, most follow routes in organised groups. Even if you go alone on a trip, you can often meet other hikers on the route. You can also organise hiking adventures with people you don't know through online forums. Hiking is a great way to build new friendships as well as make old friendships stronger.
Hiking is an endurance physical activity. Often, a hike will last several hours or days. The slow but steady pace is ideal for burning fat and calories, losing weight and getting fit.
