Hiking Solo SAFELY

Most of my hikes I do alone. Often I meet new people on the trail. Sometimes share some miles or a meal.

But it’s easier to PLAN and COMPLETE adventures by yourself.

Some TIPS:

  • make sure your skills are solid …
  • pick the right route
  • share your itineray
  • check in with Rangers
  • sign trail registers
  • stick to your route (if possible)
  • plan thoroughly
  • using GPS devices as well as non-electronic maps is safest
  • bypass hazards (if possible)
  • pack communication device(s)
  • carry emergency supplies
  • bring firestarter gear, just in case
  • carry a knife
  • cross streams safely
  • carry the lightest gear you can
