It's not quite how I'd have put it, but the Macquarie dictionary defines bushwalking as "the sport of making one's way on foot through the bush, often on tracks designed for this but sometimes for longer periods through virgin terrain." The Australian "bushwalking" is not far in meaning from "hiking", "trekking", "tramping", or "rambling", for those of you speaking other Englishes.
This was, to the best of my knowledge, the first bushwalking page on the Web, but is now just a personal site, not the comprehensive resource I originally envisaged.
