Does anyone use hiking poles? What kind of terrain do you like using them?

I only recently started hiking with poles because I found they gave me a lot more support on steep trails during the descent. I only carry them on some of the steeper trails and first tried them when I went to Panorama Ridge 2 years ago and found they really helped when coming down the loose rock near the top. I forget the brand but the ones I have are very light and fold down so I can just hook them onto my backpack and use them only when I need to.

I'm happy with them.
