There, next to the Pringles. Just across the aisle from the breakfast bars. Illuminated by fluorescent tubes. Under the speaker oozing music without a beat. Trail mix. That's right, trail mix, in precisely measured, comes-in-eight-flavors, sanitized-for-your-protection, hermetically sealed pouches, adorned with tasteful corporate logos. Corporate consumables go woodsy. Breaking out of his shell, that dapper nut with the monocle, Mr. Peanut, has gone from the bridge table to the great outdoors with his own brand of trail mix. It's just perfect for those times when you're trapped on the Beltway in your gas-guzzling Terrain Masher sport utility vehicle and you can't call on your cell phone to get sushi delivered.

It was pretty much a given that Joe Vogelpohl's kids would love hiking. As a ranger at Patapsco Valley State Park, Vogelpohl spends most of his days on trails and often takes his children, Isaac, 4, and Cecelia, 1, along on weekends. Cecilia is usually strapped to Vogelpohl's back, while Isaac can hike four miles, walking most of the way and being carried every now and then. "We have done lots of hiking," says Vogelpohl, who lives in Sykesville. "I started them early. " He lets his children set their own pace and encourages exploration and detours along the way. Isaac often stops on the trail to skip rocks in the stream or look for bugs.

He has tried bicycling on the roads, but Gene Bayer learned his lesson long ago: You can't size up what a motorist is thinking. "I've been hit twice," said Bayer, president of the Baltimore Bicycling Club, via cell phone as he pedaled along the BWI Trail on a recent afternoon. "Some drivers think they can [safely] get within an inch of you. I don't trust the traffic." In densely populated states like Maryland, those increasing numbers who bike or walk regularly and those who drive are a dangerous mix at best - one of many reasons the state kick-started a plan this summer that would establish a safe, accessible and fully interconnected network of "dual-use" trails across Maryland.

The Food and Drug Administration said yesterday it will look into how caffeine in foods and snacks affects children. What spurred this? The FDA didn't say directly, but many people are pointing to a new "Alert Energy" gum by Wrigley that contains caffeine. The addictive ingredient is also showing up in other places, such as trail mix and jelly beans. Health experts have been worried for a while now about the effects of caffeine-packed energy drinks on children and anyone who might have heart issues.

A front-page story in The Sun the other day said discount airlines are getting more and more creative with their in-flight snacks. Southwest Airlines is offering Honey Maid banana bars and Ritz snack mix. Air Tran Airways is handing out cheese crackers shaped like whales and some awful-sounding concoction called Black Cherry Vanilla Coke. JetBlue gives out blue potato chips, apparently so even the most dimwitted passenger won't forget what airline he's flying. But tell me: Are snacks really a top priority with airline passengers these days?

WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. - Should U.S. forces attack Iraq, "Caveman" is ready to pack up his brown-bag lunch - stuffed with an Italian hoagie and trail mix - and grab his air mattress and sleeping bag. "Caveman" is the call sign of Air Force Lt. Col. Scott Vander Hamm, who pilots the radar-evading, bat-winged B-2 Spirit bomber, the first warplane the Pentagon will send into harm's way to penetrate Iraqi air defenses and command centers if President Bush...

Sunday morning, simple pleasures: A family bicycling trip along the edge of a cool river, a smooth trail cutting between neatly planted rows of leafy trees. Our 4-year-old gestured grandly from her seat on the trailer behind my husband's bike, hand-hewn willow bracelets fluttering on her arm. Our 6-year-old, digging his heels into the pedals on his 7-speed, zoomed ahead. About three miles from the 150-year-old farmhouse where we'd spent the night, we turned into the trailhead and parked our bikes in a quaint town park.

Ask Amy Pickwick to take a hike, and this lifelong outdoor enthusiast will gladly oblige - especially in Maryland during the fall. While the founder and president of the Maryland Outdoor Club treks countless miles along state trails year-round, a fall hike, she says, is something exceptional: crisp air, a color palette of changing foliage, and, generally, fewer "crowds" on trails. "We do a lot of fall hikes," says Pickwick, 28, a Frederick native whose 3-year-old, Columbia-based hiking club has 3,000 registered members.
