The Let’s Hike Blog has received various reports about people using Park City transportation in order to ease the burden that has been imposed upon them due to their rigorous hiking schedules. It would be untrue to say that the manner in which this burden has been lessened is the same across all hikers. For example, one hiker lessened their burden by using transportation in Park City to convey them from their house to the trail head. Whereas another hiker actually performed the entire hike using said transportation. Of course this does not technically count as actually hiking but c’est la vie as they say.
HIKE WITH PARK CITY TRANSPORTATION
This does raise an interesting question as to what exactly constitutes hiking. The Let’s Hike Blog research team looked into this and discovered that there really is not one agreed upon definition of the term “hiking.” Essentially however, we can all appreciate that the term “hiking” refers to the activity of walking outdoors. There is a great deal of wiggle room within this definition. The hiking can be leisurely or it can be vigorous for example. The hiking can take place over flat terrain or up the side of a steep mountain for another example.
Under no definition that our research team was able to discover was the term hiking used to refer to a person traveling inside a vehicle of some sort. Now some people might argue that conveying one’s self through the use of one’s legs is a perfectly legitimate form of transportation. And if we are referring to leg powered transportation then we would agree that that form of transportation would fall under the definition of “hiking” as is commonly understood. However, we all have the sense that this is not what is being referred to when we use the term Park City transportation.
