The Brazos™ Hickory Hitchhiker has a distinctive, majestic spiraling twist, and a unique thumbs up profile, which has won the admiration of thousands of hikers and collectors alike. Now we are proud to offer the unique Hitchhiker design coupled with the legendary strength, flexibility, and versatility of hickory. Whether you're planning a rigorous trek across mountainous terrain or a leisurely stroll through lazy neighborhood pathways, the Hickory Hitchhiker is a stick you can count on to last for years to come.

Each piece is finished with a protective clear coat lacquer to magnify the hickory's natural beauty. For serious hiking the rubber ferrule can be upgraded to a spike ferrule, combination spike, or our top-of-the-line Lee Valley Spike, 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.

    Great Stick

    Posted by SWD on 11th Apr 2016

    This is my second Brazos Hitchhiker Walking Stick. My other one is an Extra Size Hitchhiker Oak Walking Stick. Not as robust as the Extra Size but more refined and classy. Pay attention to sizing. My grip falls perfectly in the recess between the two swells. Brazos Craftsman do a great job and get it engraved it is worth the extra cost. Between the two the Extra Size Hitchhiker Oak is my favorite.

    Pull the Trigger

    Posted by Montie on 21st May 2015

    Bought two hickory walking sticks, one a free form.... and this one....the Hitchhiker model. Took the Hitchhiker out on its maiden voyage this morning and didn't get 50 feet past the front door when I got the first complement .... from a grouchy o'l neighbor .... none the less ...who doesn't even like to talk .... let alone give a compliment! (I don't think he eats enough fiber)

    Anyway, by the end of my morning walk, I received several more compliments from the neighborhood regarding this stick ... one of which wanted to buy it from me right there on the spot!

    Premium wood, Masterly crafted .... Brazo sticks are rugged pieces of art that will be passed down for generations! Don't think twice .... Pull the Trigger ... and purchase one of these wooden heirlooms .... you will be so glad you did!

    my third Hitchhiker Walking stick

    Posted by aFOLLOWERflawed on 18th Jul 2013

    Obviously since this is my third Hitchhiker stick, I love this design. The hickory is a little less delicate than my first two which were of other less weighty woods BUT I was going for sturdy in all situations and got it. The tactile feel is still there and I feel safe on all types of terrain. YES - I am hard on sticks - have broken one by getting it caught in the machinery of a "stand you up" recliner and the other by it being thrown many feet in a parking lot and then getting run over by a truck. Actually I still use both of these having glued and splinted and braced them like the old friends that they are. I have had several engraved with my e-mail address because I ALSO tend to leave them in restaurants. This company makes the best sticks I have ever found.
