Hiking Poles for Summer Walks


Our blog this week continues from last week's post which looked at the range of sticks and canes that we have back in stock. As part of our stock replenishment we have taken delivery of a wide variety of walking sticks in preparation for the summer season. This week we have themed our walking sticks around the great outdoors and selected a range of sticks for those countryside ramblers, trekkers and hillwalkers amongst you.

Maybe you are planning a few weekends away over the summer to explore the beautiful UK countryside, or perhaps you are off to scale the mountains of the Lake District or the Scottish Highlands. Indeed, you could even be off to do some of the longer walks around Europe. Whatever your trekking plans are for this summer, we would recommend one of our hiking or trekking poles from the Stick and Cane Shop. These will help to provide optimal stability on rough or uneven terrain, and also help ease the strain on your joints and muscles as you walk.

So whatever your plans may be for the summer season, if you are planning a walking trip this summer, be sure to check out our full range of hiking staves and hiking poles at the Stick and Cane Shop!
