A summer hike is one of my favorite ways to spend time with the kids, get some fresh air, and enjoy some exercise. If you’re not a hiker, don’t be intimidated. All you really need is a good pair of shoes, a trail, and some delicious trail mix. I came across this idea for a Trail Mix Bar and had to share it with you. What a fun way to let everyone customize their own mix and get ready for a few hours of fun! While you’re at it, why not invite a bunch of friends and organize a moveable party? You could either provide the ingredients, or invite guests to bring an item to share. Then let everyone scoop a bit of everything into their own bag before hitting the trail.
If you’re not sure where to hike, check out Day Hikes Finder, which suggests a variety of different day hikes across the nation. Or, if time or distance doesn’t allow a drive to the mountains, try an urban hike. Walk to the library, a park, or a fountain. Just get out and have fun! And save some trail mix for me!
