Tips for Smart Hiking
Keefe Gorman graduated from St. Lawrence University with a degree in economics. Currently serving as an investment advisor at Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman fills his spare time with physically engaging pastimes, such as hiking and mountain biking.
Sufficient preparation is the first step toward a safe and enjoyable hiking experience. This may involve considerations like monitoring the weather forecast and gauging how much food, water, and supplies will be required for the hike.
It is also important for hikers to know their personal limitations: after becoming familiar with a trail or mountain, hikers must evaluate the distance they can endure and how much time they should give themselves to complete the hike. For those with physical issues, it is important never to feel pressured to keep pace with fellow hikers.
Finally, hikers should never go out trekking alone. Tackling even the simplest trail can lead to a sprained ankle or period of unexpected exhaustion. Having a friend around to help can prevent serious complications.
