Helpful Tips

  1. Plan and educate yourself about the difficulty ratings of walking paths – easy, moderate or difficult. Carry a guidebook with maps or take a photograph of kiosk trail head maps.
  2. Walk with a friend for safety and companionship. If hiking alone, be sure to tell a friend or a relative where you are hiking. Carry a smart phone, but also ensure there is coverage.
  3. Stay on designated paths, respect private and public land. Be considerate of animal wildlife habitat and wild plants – take pictures and leave nature undisturbed.
  4. Stay hydrated, carry water and snacks.
  5. Have appropriate hiking footwear with good traction.
  6. Wear appropriate clothing based on daily weather conditions and temperatures. Consider sunglasses, insect repellent (ticks), layers, trekking poles, and in the winter – micro spikes, YakTrax or snowshoes.

  8. Assess the parking situation at the trailhead, be sure to lock your vehicle and do not leave any valuables in the car.
