Anyone go hiking?

What would be a good stroller for a flat hiking trail.

    We hike with DD weekly. We have a jogging stroller and a kelty kids backpack. By far, my preference is the backpack. Even on trails that "seem" like they are flat/smooth, always have tons of rocks and stuff. That being said, if you don't want to go the backpack way, people seem to like the BOB stroller. Its not the one we have though.

    Do you think a moby or mei tai would be ok or would the backpack be less strain on my shoulders/back?

    How long is the hike you are talking about? Is it a strenuous one? Will you go hiking lots of times with LO or is it kinda just this once?

    We go pretty frequently and we use our Ergo.  Much easier - no worries about rocks, etc

    I want to start hiking regularly. At least once a week if not more. I'm not really sure how long or strenuous but I believe the trail I plan on starting with is a pretty easy one.

    I was just looking up the Ergo. The only thing that I wasn't sure about with that is one of the reviews said the baby sits low and doesn't have a good view. Do you find that to be true? I think that might bother my LO. She's very nosey.

    When we go hiking we wear C, now in an Ergo (earlier in a moby).

    If it's HOT and I'm just walking in the neighborhood etc I use my full sized stroller (UppaBaby Vista, but it's expensive, consider a CityMini for more local walking depending on what features you're looking for).

     We have the CityMini double and love it.  My DH has taken it on a few hikes and he said it was fine.  I refuse to hike because on the crime shows it always seems like "hikers" find the bodies. Wink

    We actually did a 2 mile hike yesterday (relatively easy with some rocks, etc). and we use our Kelty backpack. The little guy LOVES it! He was cooing and laughing for the whole 1.5 hours we were out. Plus I can wear it as well as DH. Our "little one" is 21 lbs at 5.5 mos. so its nice to have something that distributes the weight evenly. Here is the one we have:

    LOL  I love hiking and I'm nervous about it for that exact reason! I definitely won't go alone.
