Why use trekking poles? Go ahead and Google it: there are loads of reasons for, and a decent number against. For: they reduce impact on your knees, ankles and feet – an assertion that sports medicine mostly supports. If you’re at all wobbly through the hips they’re also a decent balance aid. Having said that, the Three Capes Track is wide and even, and there’s a fair number of duckboards, which can jam your poles. But there are also a lot of stairs, for which sticks are useful.

It comes down to this: do you feel more comfortable and capable with them? If the answer’s yes, take them. We carry two models of pole: two-section Black Diamond Trail Sport 2 that weigh about 550g a pair, and three-section Macpac A3 that are about 600g a pair.

There are loads of reasons for using trekking poles, including that they reduce impact on your knees, ankles and feet, and help with balance if you’re at all wobbly through the hips. The Three Capes Track is wide and even but it has loads of stairs, and a lot of walkers are finding poles an invaluable aid. The track’s many timber duckboards are known as a bit of a pole hazard (think tips getting caught in gaps) so we fit all our poles with rubber tips.
