    Hi all! I'm new to hiking. I wan't to explore and see if I would love to do more of it. Are tennis shoes okay for this hike?

    September 12, 2013

    • Bob S

      Yes tennis shoes are fine.

    Anything you are willing to walk seven miles down a dirt path on. I would focus on bringing some water. You can hike with it or leave it for when you get back, either way you will be glad you had it.
