The Rules of Hiking

By Tim Gamble

The Rules of Hiking
Stay safe by following these Rules of Hiking

1) Always check with your doctor before starting any exercise program.

2) Never hike alone. Always let others know where you are hiking and when to expect you back.

3) At least one person in the group should be familiar with the area where you are hiking.

4) Always wear appropriate shoes and clothing for the terrain and weather.

5) Each hiker should have a whistle and a flashlight in case they get separated from the group.

6) Each hiker should carry water, some extra food, and an individual first aid kit with them at all times.

7) Be responsible: don't litter, be very careful with fire, follow posted rules, and respect private property.

Have fun with your new hobby!
