Long-lasting hiking shorts for long-lasting hikes

 

Stop looking for fraying hems and inseams. Our abrasion resistant trail shorts are made to take on just as many trails as you do. Any pair of shorts that features ripstop is extra trail-ready, durable without sacrificing breathability. If you're worried about rain, or planning to hike next to a river, try a pair of water-repellent shorts. With a durable water resistant (DWR) coating and quick-dry construction, they're perfect for wet hikes. Is the sun your biggest worry? We've got your back. Our shorts offer protection from UV rays, especially when paired with sun protection clothing up to UPF 50. Don't forget the sunscreen!

Protect your gear on the trail. What doesn't go in your hiking pack can go in zippered pockets and rear pockets to stay safe and secure.

 

Craft your best look with our best hiking shorts

 

Warm weather is no reason to leave fashion in the dust. Hikers can look good while still getting the most out of our hiking gear. Our hike shorts come in a variety of colors and styles. Pick between belt loops and drawstring waists, long inseam lengths and short, bright colors/patterns and neutrals. For even more styles, check out our wider range of men's shorts and women's shorts.

If you'd rather run than hike, head over to our running shorts section. And don't forget your trail running shoes!

 

Trademark The North Face comfort for your hike

 

Comfort is the name of our game, and we play to win. Whether you're looking for relaxed fit or stretchy spandex blends, we've got what you need to stay comfortable when you slide into your hiking boots. Don't be afraid to work up a sweat: we've built our hiking shorts to be moisture-wicking and quick-drying. The fabric and construction is breathable, to cool off on hot trails. A gusseted crotch lets you move however you need to. Jump that creek, climb over fallen logs, and clamber up rocky hills with ease. Keep everything else you need for comfort in the cargo pockets of your shorts. Stuff baggies of snacks and an extra sun hat in side pockets and back pockets.

When the weather turns cold, you can reach for our hiking pants instead.
