Brazos™ Free Form Twisted Sweet Gum Hiking Stick

Serious hikers and casual walkers alike praise the Twisted Sweet Gum Walking Stick for its strength, versatility, and beauty. This best-selling walking stick, excellent for both men and women, is lightweight with a beautiful, intricate pattern. This distinctive hardwood, with its darkish bark and grain, is an ideal walking aid for trekking through both neighborhoods and wooded trails. Like all of our twisted sticks, the aesthetic appeal of the Twisted Sweet Gum Walking Stick is accented by our trademark twist that spirals down its shaft. The finished staff is a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted walking stick that is both sturdy and attractive.

Made in America, One at a Time

Unlike sterile, lifeless metal canes and poles, Brazos walking canes offer natural appeal because they are made from real wood. You can see the fine detail and beauty of the actual tree when you look at one. Each cane is a work of art. Plus, because they are solid wood, there are no moving parts to become unstable. Brazos Walking Sticks is family operated and located in the beautiful Brazos River Valley of Central Texas. Each walking stick is handcrafted by skilled local craftsmen.

Make it Uniquely Yours

All our hiking sticks can be personalized with laser engraving, making them uniquely yours. Walking sticks and canes can be further customized with accessories listed above, per your choice.

To be sure, determining the right size walking stick or can be a subjective art form. What feels right for one person may feel horrible for another. However, with almost two decades of experience in making handcrafted, wooden walking sticks and canes, you can be sure that we have some opinions on the matter!

Walking Sticks

  • For small children and shorter adults, we generally recommend a 41-inch stick.
  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a 48-inch stick.
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 5’11”, we recommend a 55-inch stick.
  • For adults over 5’11”, we recommend a 58-inch stick.

Walking Canes

  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a our lighter 34-inch canes
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 6’, we recommend our standard 37-inch canes as the best starting point.
  • For adults over 6’, we offer 40-inch canes.

Cane sizing is best achieved by standing up nice and straight, relaxing your arm naturally to the side, and having someone measure the distance from your wrist to the floor.

Again, let me reiterate, the sizing recommendations listed above are only suggestions. For people needing step-by-step support, it’s best to consult your doctor or another medical professional about your exact sizing needs.

    Good companion

    Posted by John L. Evans on 16th May 2019

    My sweet gum twisted walking stick is always with me on my outdoor excursions. It is very lightweight, strong and beautifully made. I meet other hikers with their metal trekking poles and they often comment on how much more “natural and beautiful” my stick is. I would recommend Brazos walking sticks to anyone who wants a work of art as well as a quality walking tool.

    This is a piece of art. Don't get me wrong. I am going to take it out in the weather, but this stick is a beauty.

    Twisted Sweet Gum Walking Stick

    Posted by S. Dennis on 18th Jan 2018

    I did a lot of research before purchasing my Sweet Gum stick and I'm glad I did. I love this stick. I am a short woman (under 5 ft.) and have very small hands. I needed to purchase my walking stick from someone who could truly customize it for me. I called the company to ask it I could have a stick shorter than those listed and asked if I could have a smaller grip. The individual I spoke with was very nice, she explained that I should order the 48" stick and request that it be shortened to 43" and have a smaller grip made (this is done as you check out). Anyway, as I said, this is a beautiful, sturdy stick. The compass I ordered as well as the Brazos brass spike are perfect compliments to my walking stick, they look as if they were made, just for my stick. Thank you Enrique Najera for creating the perfect walking & hiking companion for me.

    Twisted Sweet Gum Walking Stick

    Posted by Stephanie Vickers on 26th Jun 2017

    I'm so pleased with my new Twisted Sweet Gum walking stick--I love things that are functional as well as beautiful, and this stick is exactly that! It's first real trial will be in a few weeks for hiking the uneven terrain around the Finger Lakes area in Western New York. The twisty carving really reveals the beauty of the wood, and when not in use, and it feels lovely in the hand. Thanks, Joel Lancaster, for this very practical work of art!

    Lightweight and Beautiful

    Posted by Helen Z on 1st Oct 2015

    This Twisted Sweet Gum Walking Stick is absolutely perfect. While shopping all the sticks, I was at first trying to find something lightweight that would be quite different from my Twisted Hickory Stick I've owned for many years. But it finally dawned on me that since I love my original stick so much, it was silly to feel I needed to avoid another twisted one. This Twisted Sweet Gum stick is the perfect addition to my collection. It's VERY lightweight. The wood has its own personality, with the bark being quite different from my hickory stick. My daughter said it seems more "woodsy". I love the beauty of the twist, and the rounded top is still my favorite. I used my stick every single day, every time I step out my door. This stick is so lightweight and to beautiful, I highly recommend it to everyone.

    This was given as a retirement gift. It was perfect. It came timely, looked and felt great. The recipient was absolutely thrilled. This is my second purchase and continue to not be disappointed.

    "Now, that is a nice stick!"

    Posted by STEPHEN MORTENSEN on 19th Aug 2011

    Following our conversation on the telephone today, I am convinced that the quality of the product purchased is a direct result of the people behind it. I have no physical limitations and am a former athlete. After 12 years of searching for the perfect Walking Stick (strait as a arrow, tall, thick, and strong) and refusing all imitators, I finally found the perfect Staff yesterday! Standing straight and proud in a Brazos Bin was a gorgeous 55" Free Form Twisted Sweet Gum Staff fitting my hand perfectly (see pic). Following my purchase and exiting the retail store, a women entering said to me, "Now, that is a nice stick!"

    Thank you for your pursuit of excellence and meeting my need...

    Stay Safe,
