Gift Guide for your Favorite Hiker

Maybe the weather is getting colder, but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop getting outdoors and exploring all that nature has to offer. Take some time this Thanksgiving weekend to explore a new trail or park. I mean, you gotta work off all that amazing food mom made, right?

I was introduced to hiking during my first year of college. Growing up in a small, farming community didn’t offer much in the way of new and exciting hikes. A floormate invited me, along with some other friends, to visit Taylors Falls, MN. This beautiful, small town on the border of Minnesota and Wisconsin is home to beautiful views and hiking trails that follow the St. Croix River. I grabbed my tennis shoes, a pair of crew socks, and hopped in the car.

Fast forward six hours, we’re heading home, and I vowed that the next time I went hiking I would have better socks. As a newcomer, I had no idea the importance of good, quality socks. Lucky for you, we’ve gathered our best hiking socks to share with you. Take a look at our favorites and plan your next hike!
