Hiking is a wonderful past time, but it can be much harder than it seems. You need to understand the trails, have the right clothing and shoes, and know how to keep pace. Expert always advise to bring plenty of water to stay hydrated and plan to carry enough water for an entire day (which is a lot).
You should also keep small snacks just to keep your energy levels up. Safety is the biggest key, however, and keeping communication with the outside world is essential. Text someone your hiking route just so they know where you’ll be. Once you are done, text that friend and let them know you are safe.
Now that we’ve given you a few tips, try heading out to Carolina park on Poppy St in Redlands for a hike sometime soon. You’ll thank us for it. Happy trails!
