Everything You Need for Summer Hiking Is on Sale

There is no official hiking season, but summer might as well be it.


There is no official hiking season, no dates on the calendar that mark its start or end. But this year, it feels that way, given that so many trail systems have only recently begun to open to the public as various regions lift restrictions put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Summer hiking is on, and so is a massive sale on everything you need to do it. We parsed through hundreds of discounted items and curated the best we could find here. If you need inspiration on where to hike, see our list of the best day hikes in America. And if you aren’t sure what virus-related precautions you should take on the trail, check out the American Hiking Society’s FAQ on the subject.
