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?
To those looking to purchase trekking poles, I suggest a set with springs and the ability to telescope to different heights. You will need to pack them. These are significant knee aides. Check the sites of used equipment - letgo.com, craigslist.com., etc. Happy Trails !
