A summer hike sounds like the perfect idea: get outside, get active and (hopefully) get some sun. Knowing you’ve got a backpack full of goodies makes it that much easier to push up those rocks when the trail becomes more than just a leisurely walk, and the view from the top is best enjoyed while grubbing. Throw these five hiking snacks in your bag before you head out for the next adventure, and you’ll be conquering the trails like an Olympian.
1. Trail Mix
Pick up a pre-portioned bag at the grocery store or mix together your favorite nuts and dried fruits. My personal favorite includes a golden ratio of peanuts, almonds, cashews, raisins and dark chocolate pieces (because chocolate is always a good idea). Check out all the homemade trail mix recipes for some inspo.
