Do You Prefer Hiking Alone or With a Companion?

While some say hiking alone is dangerous, there is something very peaceful about getting some much-needed alone time in a beautiful and serene setting. Hiking with friends on the other hand is a great way to play catchup while burning calories and getting your heart pumping. No one way is better, so tell us: do you prefer to hike alone or with a companion?

While I love the solitude of hiking alone, I think it's simply too dangerous to do so for fear of getting hurt and not having anyone there to help you. Dlori kleimanlaw at aol dot com

I have hiked alone, but I don't prefer it. Once or twice I joined a large group that was already on the trail. Haha, it sounds like I'm a creeper, but if you have good people skills, they're happy to have you company, too. :)

I hike with someone because I just like the company. It's nice to talk about the awesome stuff we're seeing, or to spend time in silent companionship. The odds of falling where I hike is slim to none. (And if I get lost, my friends wouldn't be any help. lol.)
