If safety is important to your when hiking in the mountains, then you need trekking poles.
Often mountains have gravelly surfaces that are slippery and steep. Without poles, one is at the mercy of the mountain, however with poles, you take back control of the situation.
Poles also will save your knees, and generally strengthen your arms .
