Walking and Hiking
Walking and Hiking are both activities that involve movement on foot and can be done with a small to medium investment. Walking is generally done at a leisurely pace and can be done for transportation, exercise, or leisure. Hiking is a form of walking that is usually done in natural surroundings, such as in the woods or mountains. Hiking is often done for the purpose of exercise, recreation, or sightseeing. Both walking and hiking can provide a range of physical and mental health benefits, including improved cardiovascular fitness, stress relief, and increased strength and flexibility. They can also be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities.
One key difference between the two is the intensity. Hiking is generally more strenuous than walking due to the terrain and inclines, and may require special gear such as hiking boots and a backpack. Walking is generally less strenuous and can be done with minimal equipment. Both can provide physical and mental health benefits.
