Hiking is the best way to gain back some contact with nature and the perfect therapy to leave home behind and let your mind unwind. It’s also a great way to get back in shape, start moving your muscles and get some air to your lungs.
But, no matter how easy it looks to just take a few things and search for a trail, there are some tips and secrets you need to know in order to make it a pleasant and safe experience. OGX wants to share some of those hacks with you today.
1. Choose your trail wisely
Always! It is vital for you to know where you’re going and how the terrain is going to be. Luckily you have technology on your side, apps and websites have all the information you need about your hiking trail and what you may find through it.
When picking a trail, take into account the weather, time you need, distance, elevation and your own fitness level. This way, not only will you be prepared, but you will also have peace of mind.
2. Pack your gear wisely
There is no point in packing a huge bag if your trail is going to be short and represents a low difficulty path. However, there are some essentials you need to have with you at all times – water, sunscreen, first aid kit, snacks, fire, light and clothes according to the weather you will have.
3. Leave no trace
There are some principles all hikers must follow and comply with, in order to show respect for the place they visit and for other hikers that share the same path. These are really simple:
- Plan and prepare
- Travel and camp on durable surfaces
- Dispose of your waste properly
- Leave what you find
- Minimize campfire impacts
- Respect wildlife
- Be considerate of other visitors
Following them will ensure a nice experience for everyone and will help keep the trail clean and ready for others who are going through it as well.
