Event Details

Learning how to use poles enables hikers and outdoor enthusiasts to significantly improve their performance on a variety of terrain.  Optimal use of poles improves your endurance, posture, balance and upper body strength.   You’ll feel more power and confidence as you use your whole body by practicing skills on easy paths in the morning then, progressing with more techniques , on more challenging terrain in the afternoon.  Using your core muscles helps to preserve your joints! Learn skills that will reduce knee stress, improve back health, and prolong agility.

A variety of top quality poles will be available to help you discover which poles fit you best and can help you to achieve your outdoor goals. Hikers of all experience levels are welcome, from novice to advanced.  Practice new skills on a short nature pole-practice hike in the afternoon on beautiful trails in Point Reyes National Seashore. Participants who are not quite ready for hiking have the option of learning the basic skills in the morning and opting out of the practice hike in the afternoon.  Also open to youth (age 15-17) with parent attendance.
