During the summer, many people head to the trails. From national park mountains to cityscapes to state parks, the idea of backpacking and hiking can take on different meanings to those who enjoy the activities. No matter where you are backpacking or hiking, there area safety tips to remember.
Longtime Scout instructor and Trainer, Dann Flaherty, says safe hiking/backpacking includes using the buddy system and being visible.
Flaherty’s third safety factor is to make a plan for your hike and make sure others are aware of it…then hike that plan. That way if you’re not home within a reasonable amount of time for the plan, others will know that something may be wrong.
