What People Say


I am really enjoying the customized hiking stick. It has some unique characteristics that sets it apart from the store-bought hiking sticks.  I can tell you spent a lot of time and effort hand crafting this stick just for me. 

Also, the safety features like the mirror and leather strap will come in handy if I ever run into an issue during my hike. 


I will definitely be using this hiking stick on my local walks on the trails in Minnesota and when visiting our favorite hiking trails in Upper Michigan. 


Thanks again Dean!


I asked Dean for a badass hiking stick and he did not disappoint! This thing is beautiful! It's  very well made, sturdy, and full of details.

I love the color, camouflage leather wrap, skull and mirror. I feel better protected when taking hikes and walks because I have this with me.


I have to hide it from my daughter  who wants it for herself!


Dean made me a custom walking stick complete with some sports insignias, a bottle opener, light, and the top of the stick embedded with my favorite hockey team (MN Wild). The wood was finely detailed with a rubber bump on the bottom of the stick and a strap to wrap it around my wrist.

I have used it a couple times now throughout some hiking trips with my wife. The grip hasn't caused any blistering. Absolutely spectacular craftsmanship, durability, and comments from others of "Hey! Where did you get that?" 


I've had the luxury of owning a Trail Tough Stick for over five years. Not only is it a durable and useful walking aid, but it is extremely good looking with a fine high gloss finish adorned with my favorite NFL Team...The Green Bay Packers. A winning combination for sure!


I want to applaud you for the outstanding job you did in crafting my custom-made Vikings hiking stick. The quality workmanship and your superior attention to detail far surpassed my expectations. You transformed a simple piece of nature into a stout, attractively personalized hiking accessory. One look and you can tell this is no assembly line product.  I feel the price I paid was a bargain too. I would not hesitate in recommending your product!


My family has three trail tough walking sticks and we have used them to hike all over Minnesota and Wisconsin. They look so nice that we almost feel guilty using them as walking sticks.
