Hiking Naked

You haven’t lived until you’ve hiked naked!

Have you ever been walking along, in the wilderness or otherwise and thought “Gee, this would feel even better with out clothes”? Hiking nude may be the ultimate experience of freedom. Nothing between you and the air allows you to totally relax and become one with the environment.

Now, finding a place to hike nude is not always easy. You may be lucky enough to live near a nudist resort with adequate trails. If not, you can find sufficiently remote areas of state and federal parks where you are unlikely to encounter anyone. Usually if you do encounter someone, they will not report you nor have an unfavorable reaction. It is considerate, however, to have a pair of shorts handy in case you see them before they see you. Types of suitable terrain could be anything hike-able, from forests, to mountains to deserts. Your items you want to carry can be kept in a back-pack or fanny-pack. As with clothed hiking, keep in mind sunscreen and insect-repelling needs.

  1. My first time going out nude was hiking and I know exactly what you are saying. I spent my longest hike nude last spring hiking in the mountains for 5 hours. I did not want it to end! I could have stayed all day. The liberating feeling of the air on my skin and the sun touching my whole body was exhilerating.
