There are many benefits to hiking and moderate exercise: they reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems, help stabilise bones, joints, tendons and sinews, and boost your immune system. Walking for longer periods also stimulates the body’s production of hormones and neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. This leaves you feeling better and less prone to moods like sadness and anger. Last but not least, hiking increases the rate at which nerve cells in the brain branch and renew, improving your mental capacity.
