The newest trend going around Coeur d’Alene is hiking. “Why hiking?” you may ask, “Aren’t teens against physical activities and nature?” It’s true. No one’s really sure what happened for teens to start hiking, but it’s certainly a great thing for teenage health. My personal belief is that now that the sun is inspiring us all to get out and enjoy the beautiful scenery that Coeur d’Alene has to offer. Hiking can cause many health benefits and improvements to a teenager’s physical appearance. According to WebMD, It can lower your risk of heart disease, improve your blood pressure, and even boost bone density. As far as your physical improvements go, it can improve balance, strengthen your core, and improve your glutes, hamstrings, calves, and lower back.

I personally enjoy taking hikes along with other teens. Recently, I took a hike at Mineral Ridge on the northeastern part of the lake. I would recommend it as a top pick for hiking spots in our area. You could also take Tubbs Hill to keep it simple, and then walk to go enjoy a bite to eat downtown. I also enjoy hiking up on Higgens Point, which is right by Mineral Ridge. If you also hike there in the winter months of the year, you could enjoy eagle watching while you are there. So, if you are feeling adventurous, get some friends and enjoy the beautiful sun.
