Our favorite source for finding trails is the AllTrails App. Watch for sales when the Plus membership is 50% off. When picking routes, I typically look for trails less than 500 ft elevation change, 3-5 miles in length, and preferably a loop for our local hikes.
Walking on uneven trail surfaces requires a little more balance than walking on sidewalks. Hiking poles are a great help with this.
My favorite hydration backpack is made by Osprey, although there are many others to choose from. The important thing is to find a way to carry water when you hike.
