Some people participate in activities that are not mainstream so they are not given much thought. Examples of these are laser tag, rollerblading and bocce. These sports don’t make headline news but it doesn’t make it less advantageous and less interesting. Another sport activity that doesn’t get much attention is hiking.

People have been engaging in this sport for centuries. It needs very minimal equipment such as a sturdy pair of boots or shoes, and you can do the sport alone or with a group.
