Will hiking tone my legs?

Hiking is a great way to tone your legs, particularly if you hike uphill. The incline of the hill will help to work your leg muscles and improve your cardiovascular fitness. If you really want to see results, try adding some weight to your backpack or carrying a light dumbbell in each hand. This will make the hike more challenging and help you burn even more calories. Just be sure to start slowly and increase the intensity gradually to avoid injury.
