Hiking with kitties?

Every Saturday my family go on hikes. We had a jindo, Candy, for a year and a half. She had alot of energy, jumpy and stuff like that, we would take her to hikes with us and take her leash off because we don't walk fast like her, and she follows us. She is not here anymore, has been gone for exactly 11 months now, i miss her alot. She lives with another family now.
Wellll, since we used to take Candy on hikes we wondered if we can hike with the kitties, we did not have kittens back when we still had a dog. Can i take them hiking with me? Do they have to wear a leash or will they just follow? Kerbi and Naruto don't know how to walk on leashes.

I woiuld teach them how to get along on leashes otherwise you'll never know what they could get into, including fighting with stray/wild animals.

i tried teaching them, they would rather be dragged probably than learning how to walk on a leash. I could carry them, but they do not like being held outside

Yeah, probably not a good idea. Cats aren't dogs -- they won't follow you. Even people whose cats are trained with leashes don't "heel" like dogs do.
