Hiking is one of the easiest ways to enjoy nature. All you need to do is put on a sturdy pair of shoes and get to the trail head. Oh, you might want some comfortable hiking shorts or hiking pants as well. Breathable and quick drying fabrics available in shorts, skorts and pants give you many options to stay covered while on your trip. If you catch a quick rain shower, these materials dry in a snap and wont chafe. The fabrics are great for travel as well since they resist winkles and can be easily rinsed in a sink and will be ready to wear again in a few hours. The casual styles also fit right into your wardrobe so your hiking shorts can be your out to dinner shorts just as easily.
