A kilt, as well as a wide unrestricting skirt, is perfect on the trail; this below links seem to state. But this also complies when you are just walking in the nearby woods, across a peaceful meadow or along the coast, listening to the ocean.

Why You Might Want to Hike in a Skirt!
The Trek, Semtember 18, 2015, Kira Thornley

Recommended several times above is Sport Kilts' Hiking kilt being made of ultra-lightweight and quick-drying microfibres.
Should you, for hiking, like, in this link contributor #2, with the nick name SkirtedWalker, for comfort prefer your kilt shorter than the standard 22.5", you can have it as short as 18"/46 cm and weight just below 300 g/10.5 oz.

The SK Hiking Kilt is also available in an, judged from the pictures, identical women's version.
In length 18" (standard for the women's hiking kilt) it is $17 cheaper than a same sized men's SK hiking kilt. The women's version comes in waist sizes 30"-42", and should, therefore, fit most men, should they want a kilt that short.

Adidas Genderless skirt
I haven't tried on a Sport Kilt Hiking kilt, but I suppose it should very much feel and look like this, now discontinued, Adidas Genderless Skirt, also being 18" long and weighing 295g.
