I'm going to the Adirondacks in the fall and want to do some easy to moderate hikes of 6-10 miles. I won't be doing the super hard ones, I'm 59 yrs old and will be alone. I think there's plenty of trails that won't kill me but will be a bit of a challenge.
The problem is that I live in a super flat part of the country (midwest in the U.S.)
I have been increasing my walking outside and when at the gym I'll use the treadmill with a big incline. I also bike here and there, 5 or 10 miles at most.
I'm strength training as well and am looking to be a few pounds lighter by September.
What other activities can I do to get ready for my trip?
Thank you for any tips.
