Always plan ahead for your hikes to ensure optimal preparation and prevent any unfortunate situations.
Here are some ways you can do so:~
- Know the type of terrain you will be walking on
- Check the weather forecast for the day
- Wear appropriate hiking attire (like trekking pants)
- Plan your route (don't forget to check the regulations for where you are headed!)
- If you are packing food along for the walk, try to repackage the food so as to minimise waste
