You could roll the dice and hope that a perfectly whittled walking stick is just sitting by the side of the trail for you, or you could just bring the Black Diamond Trail Sport 2 Trekking Poles and be sure that you'll get a little extra support during those steep climbs and rock-strewn descents. Black Diamond built these beauties with a durable two-piece aluminum shaft, so you can collapse them down and throw them on your pack when you need your hands free on those more exposed sections of trail, and added an extended rubber grip so you can choke up on them when you're climbing or traversing.
