We all know that hiking is good for you, but it's better for more of you than perhaps you originally thought.

According to a recent study, participants who took walks through a natural setting experienced lower levels of negative thought than other participants who walked the same amount of time in a non-natural setting.

If you really want a workout for your brain you can read the original study here.

Some more coverage of the same study from the New York Times.

The more, the better, amirite?

I find long walks help increase blood flow to help heal my frontal lobotomy.
Happy Trails!
