Hiking Staves & Sticks for Ramblers & Hillwalkers


With Spring now here and the weather improving, many of us will be getting out and about more. In fact the weather was so lovely last weekend I took a little trip down to to Northumberland on Sunday to take in one of the walks around Hadrian's Wall. It was a fresh Spring day, with mostly blue skies and the landscape around there was simply beautiful. I took with me one of my trusty hiking staves, which has seen a lot of use, but after all these years it is still going strong!

We've noticed that our range of wooden hiking staves has been particularly popular the past month, so we thought we would feature these in this week's blog. Whether you are an occasional rambler or a seasoned hill walker, ensuring you have one of these by your side will make the walk more stable, and help you navigate particularly rough terrain with ease.

At the Stick & Cane Shop we have an assortment of different hiking staves made from a variety of wood types. We cater also to all budgets, so you are sure to find a hiking stave ideal for both your needs and your wallet.

I have selected a few of our favourites below to show you some of the range available. But be sure to check out our full range of Wooden Hiking Staves here if you'd like to know more.
