In brief: Walking
The exercise should more closely resemble the activity that you are trying to mimic to get the greatest benefit.
If you are trying to improve your walking endurance, walk more. Start with small walks and progressively add in bigger, longer walks. Here is a link intended to prep you to walk 60 miles in 3 days: www.Thewalkingsite.Com/3dayschedule.Html it starts pretty hard, but you get the idea.
