Hiking Poles for Autumn Walks

Well it's well-and-truly Autumn out there. It has been rather chilly at the Stick and Cane Shop and it's time to get some layers on as we head into the winter months ahead. Still, it is also at this time of year a lot of people love to take to the countryside and the hills to enjoy the gorgeous Autumn scenery. Whether it is relaxing weekend walks in the leaf-strewn countryside, or longer walks in the hills, the landscape is particularly stunning at this time of year, especially when it is sunny. With the sun lower on the horizon, all the shadows are elongated, the air has a crispness to it and the wind can be bracing. 

At the Stick and Cane Shop, we have many ramblers, countryside walkers and hillwalkers coming to us for advice on our walking sticks for outdoor pursuits like these. Many enjoy the extra stability that a good hiking pole can provide. While others, particularly those into Nordic Walking, use the sticks as part of their sport. Our customers always come with a wide range of needs, desires and requests.

So today I thought I would highlight our ranges of hiking poles and nordic walking poles. But not only that, we have a range of hiking poles that aren't just sold individually, but come in pairs. With two sticks, the weight on your joints is spread evenly, compared with just one stick, and your stability is increased greatly. So if you are looking to get out and enjoy this wintry weather in the countryside, I would wholeheartedly suggest that a pair of hiking sticks is a worthwhile investment, particularly if you are new to this as a hobby, or need the extra stability. Why not check out our hiking poles below, and see which set works for you.

To see our full range ranges, why not visit our hiking poles and nordic walking poles pages today.
