8 Idyllic Spots to Hang Your Hammock

Summer nights are for taking a moment to slow down and just hang.

By: Cairn Inc. + Save to a List

We're all for making the most of everyday and spending as much time as we can on the trail, in the water, or on our bikes, but recovery is just as important. The best part about summer is the longer days and late sunsets and one of our favorite ways to wrap up a long day is to string up a hammock and let the sunset do the rest. The Cairn Hammock Collection, the first monthly box you'll receive when you sign up in July, includes everything you need to wind down. Here are 8 beautiful spots where you can set up you hammock for a relaxing hour or two. We hope you enjoy!
