Hiking Safety and Etiquette
Do these things before you leave:

* Cell phones are not always reliable in the backcountry.

  • Study trail descriptions and maps before starting.
  • Choose a trail suitable for the least experienced member in your group
  • Check the weather forecast and current trail conditions.
  • Pack adequate food and water, be prepared for emergencies
  • Pack clothing suitable for changes in the weather
  • Pack maps and gear including a first aid kit and bear spray
  • Tell somebody where you are going, when you will be back, and who to call if you do not return.
  • If you plan to angle, purchase a fishing license.

Be “Bear Aware”

  •  Prepare: Carry bear spray, travel with a friend or group
  • Be Aware: Watch for berries, bear diggings, and scat
  • Let bears know you’re there: Make noise

Leave No Trace

  • Pack out all garbage, including food waste.
  • Stay on trails and avoid shortcuts to prevent damage to vegetation.
  • Dispose of human waste at least 100 m from any water source. Bury solid human waste in a hole 15 cm deep. Pack out your toilet paper.
  • Natural and cultural resources such as rocks, fossils, artifacts, horns, antlers, wildflowers and nests are protected by law and must be left undisturbed for others to discover and enjoy.
  • The feeding of wild animals is dangerous and can cause harm to both the animals and to other people.

Equipment

The equipment required for hiking depends on the length of the hike, but day hikers generally carry at least water, food, a map, and rain-proof gear. Hikers usually wear sturdy hiking boots for mountain walking and backpacking, as protection from the rough terrain, as well as providing increased stability. The Mountaineers club recommends a list of “Ten Essentials” equipment for hiking, including a compass, sunglasses, sunscreen, a flashlight, a first aid kit, a fire starter, and a multi-tool knife. Other groups recommend items such as hat, gloves, insect repellent, and an emergency blanket. A GPS navigation device can also be helpful and route cards may be used as a guide.
