What Muscles are Used Hiking? Trekking up hills or mountainsides is hard work, and it engages multiple muscle groups in tandem, all while burning a serious number of calories and increasing your aerobic threshold. Here are the muscles used most strenuously: • Glutes • Quadriceps • Hamstrings • Calves • Abdominals • Lower Back • Obliques.
Hiking is a great way to get in shape — you burn tons of calories, it’s loads of fun, and who couldn’t use another excuse to spend time enjoying the outdoors? Since you’ll be working your cardiovascular system and your muscles, it’s no surprise hiking is.

If you avoid trekking poles, virtually all the work will be generated from the legs and buttocks, the largest muscle groups, thus burning maximal calories. Trekking poles won’t burn more calories if all you do is use them to assist with ambulation, which is the way people generally use these devices. Wearing a backpack or hiking can also turn up your burn.
For example, a 155-pound person burns approximately 232 calories walking at a moderate (3.5. While you likely won’t get ripped just by hiking, you will burn more calories hiking than walking. This is in part due to the additional muscles being engaged during your efforts.
