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?

  • Yes, I like hiking poles on all types of walks. They are good even for flat or road walking. Helps me keep a rhythm going. You might be able to rent from a store like REI or other outdoors store or get relatively inexpensive ones like at Costco to see if you like having them.
  • I purchased some for an upcoming hiking trip to Ireland as they were recommended. I've not used trekking poles before but feel they will be useful on my future adventures!
