Brazos™ Hickory Hitchhiker Walking Stick and Hiking Trekking Pole

The Brazos Hitchhiker design is a Brazos Walking Sticks original. 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. Do you want the world to know this stick belongs to you? Customize it with precision laser engraving. All of our hickory is meticulously chosen, cut, sanded, and prepared by our own craftsmen. 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. Like all of our finely crafted walking sticks and canes, the Brazos™ Hickory Hitchhiker Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality wood and time-tested methods.

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.

    Beautiful walking stick

    Posted by Boxwood on 20th Oct 2012

    Received my Hickory Hitchhiker Walking Stick a few days ago and I love it. The fit and finish is truly beautiful and I am sure this walking stick will outlast me. I had the stick customized with our small business name and it really added to the beauty. I added the spike ferruel which makes it sure footed and confidence inspiring, not to mention the added benefit of self protection. Would recommend to friends and family. Completely satisfied.

    I couldn't be more pleased

    Posted by RB on 29th Jul 2011

    I just received my walking stick and I couldn't be more pleased. I had called customer service to get advice on what type of stick would be best for me. I received great advice and I ordered the Hitchhiker in tan twisted ash, 55". It arrived yesterday (very fast!), it's beautiful, light-weight but very strong, exactly what I wanted!

    Thanks so much!
