“The best remedy for a short temper is a long walk.” – Jacqueline Schiff 

“I know I hike like a girl, try to keep up.”

“Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.” – Steven Wright 

“You know the old joke about how to survive a bear attack: Make sure you hike with someone who you can outrun.” – Carolyn Jourda 

Why I love this quote: This funny hiking quote is only relevant to those hiking in bear country. It’s a play on the famous phrase “you don’t need to outrun a bear, just your hiking partner” that tells us the bear will get your hiking partner first, not you. It’s kind of dark humor, but popular among quotes about the Rocky Mountains and places where bears are common.

“They say returning home is difficult after a long hike. I say, take your home with you.” 

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned from hiking, it’s that the early bird gets the face full of spider webs.” 

“Anywhere is ‘within walking distance’.”
