    On some hiking trips

    Suppose I go hiking almost every week. On some hiking trips, I meet interesting persons. On others, I don't.

    On some hiking trips, I meet interesting travelling companions.

    Does the part in bold sound natural? Can I simply say "on some hikes" instead?
    I am a fleeting visitor on this fragile Earth.

    Re: On some hiking trips

    Either could be natural, depending on the situation. If you go hiking some place relatively near your home, then you go hiking even if you drive a car to the trail head. If you first must travel some significant distance, whether by car, bus, train, etc. and then you hike, then you are on a hiking trip. This is especially true if you must spend the night away from home.

    On any such hike, you might meet interesting people (not persons).
