A Short Hike is an action-adventure game released digitally for PC and other computer platforms. The avian protagonist, Claire, is there to visit her Aunt May but is waiting for a phone call from her mother. Since the reception is bad everywhere except the summit of the nearby Hawk Peak, she decides to begin her ascent.
Hike, climb, and soar through the peaceful mountainside landscapes of Hawk Peak Provincial Park while eventually following the path to the summit. Find hidden treasures, chat with other hikers, play mini-games, or just explore the landscape. By completing objectives and exploring, the player can find golden feathers which improves Claire's ability to fly, making it easier to reach the peak.
