Narrowing Down Your Choices
With so many different off-road buggies to choose from, you’ll want a way to narrow down your choices.

Once you have done this, start looking at reviews to see which models fit your criteria, and speak to others via forums etc. to get other recommendations. Also:
- Establish your budget

- Check reviews carefully for durability, reliability and practicality.

Finally, Before You Set Off For Your Hike
It can take some time to adapt your active lifestyle to the needs of a baby, especially if it’s your first one. And once you’ve chosen a suitable off-road buggy, you’ll want to get the most from it. With that in mind, here are some additional tips to make hiking with your baby a success.
- Check that the trails are family friendly, with plenty of stop off points, picnic and suitable changing areas.
- Find out the opening and closing times and whether you need a permit before you go.
- Ask about parking options and ensure carparks aren’t too far away from the trail.
- To begin with, perhaps focus on nearby trails that don’t attract huge crowds. This will limit travel time for a new baby, and less popular trails should be quieter overall.
