Safety goes beyond just trail etiquette, being prepared and making smart choices can make all the difference on your adventure.
- Always let someone know where you plan to go and when you expect to return. Make sure they know what to do in case of an emergency. It could save you an arm.
- Carry lots of water and stay hydrated. It can be more difficult to stay hydrated in high altitudes.
- Carry a warm, waterproof jacket with you. Weather can change quickly.
- Don’t feed or harass any wildlife you may encounter.
