trekking poles

I'm interested in one of the hiking adventures through RS.  I was wondering whether I should buy trekking poles.  Does anyone have any advice as to whether they are a help for long but probably fairly flat walks?

  • I often use a walking stick for local hikes and was going to buy trekking poles for an upcoming RS trip. But, I checked the TSA website and I would have to check my luggage if I pack them. I decided against it for this trip since the hiking is going to be on low elevation-gain trails.
