Safety in the Great Outdoors

Although not a complete list, the following are a few hiking safety tips and tricks you need to consider before you hit the trail!

Hiking Alone

Let someone know where you will be and when you plan to return. On a long-distance hike, leave behind a copy of your itinerary.

Pack a Kit

Make sure you have the supplies to deal with major injuries, and make sure you have the knowledge to use it.
