In my humble opinion if you are only hiking a mile a CF tripod may be unnecessary - I do about the same level hikes and use a Manfrotto 3021Brpo tripod with 488RC4 ballhead - a total cost of $200 - the legs were $130. While CF tripods are no doubt better I don't think you NEED one for your requirements - a less expensive while still sturdy aluminum may still fit your bill.
