Choosing The Perfect Day Hiking Pack

Fall is a perfect time to get the whole family out for a hike. You’re no longer sweating the second you step outside and the leaves are starting to drop their beautifully colored leaves. If you plan to be out for even just a few hours – we always recommend carrying a hiking pack. There can be quite a variation in hiking packs so we’ve done the research and chosen three perfect day hiking packs that are perfect for families.
