I cannot for the life of me imagine why someone would hit the trails naked. Ok there’s all that talk on naturalism and all but all the same thank God for small liberties. Many naked hikers in the West get friendly reactions from the people they meet. In these parts of the world, roaming the forests in the nude would most certainly be considered madness of the worst kind.
However, naked hiking is all about fun, health and fitness like any other activity but strictly for people who can deal with the human body as it was created. Among those who practice it, it is hailed as the ultimate experience of freedom – you’re one on one with the environment. A nude hiker would want to know why there’s such debate about nudity in movement and yet the world does not seem to be equally bothered about static nudity in books, magazines, films and even some newspapers.
For those who can, good for you. You get to save on hiking gear and let all body parts grace and appreciate nature without discrimination. The web has more than enough guides for this kind of adventure.
