Yah, I agree that the best solution is a tripod. There are lots of different ones out there, many are designed with hiking in mind with lighter weight and a quick release head. One option is go for something really light, and then hang your camera bag (or whatever) from under the head to give it the stability that a heavier tripod would give you. With a decent quality tripod, you should be able to open and close it quite quickly. I have a strap for mine so I can easily sling it over the shoulder when hiking. If you are concerned at all about image quality, a tripod is the only way to go.
