Hiking Safety Tips
No one ever plans to get lost, but it does sometimes happen. Slipped on waterfalls, got off the trail or encountered other problems. Follow these tips from the pros for a fun and safe hike.
- Stay Hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day
- Avoid hiking alone because the “buddy system” is safer during any type of activity.
- Tell someone where you are going and when you will return. Don’t forget to check in with them when you get back.
- Stay on marked trails. Making shortcuts and “bushwhacking” causes erosion and greatly increases your chance of becoming lost. As you hike, pay attention to trail blazes ( paint marks on trees ) and landmarks.
- Never climb on waterfalls.
- No diving
- Always carry quality rain gear and turn back in bad weather. If you become wet or cold, it is important to get dry and warm as
quickly as possible, avoiding hypothermia.
- All hikers should carry a whistle, which can be heard far away and takes less energy than yelling. Three short blasts is a sign of distress.
- Carry plenty of drinking water and never assume stream water is safe to drink.
- Don’t count on cell phones to work in the wilderness. Also, don’t rely on a GPS to prevent you from getting lost.
- Wear bright colors.
- Give yourself plenty of time for your hike. The weather changes quickly in the canyon. Plan to be off the trails well before dark.
- Always wear sturdy shoes. Wearing sneakers, sandals, “water shoes” and “street shoes” can lead to serious accidents.
Carry An Emergency Kit
Each hiker should have these items:
- First aid kit
- Small flashlight with extra batteries
- Energy food
- Brightly colored bandana
- Trash bag (preferably a bright color, such as “pumpkin bags” sold in autumn). Poke a hole for your head and wear it as a poncho to stay warm and dry.
What To Do if You Are Lost
- Stay put.
- Make shelter.
- Stay warm and dry.
- Be visible and heard.
