Hiking for Beginners


If you find yourself in an unexpected situation you're going to be very glad you had this hey guys welcome back to my blog. In this article I'm gonna go over six tips for beginner hikers now if you're new to my channel my entire channel is devoted to hiking backpacking and camping resources so make sure you hit subscribe so you don't miss a video. I write new ones every single week without further ado we're just gonna dive right into this video with tip number one tip number one is to tell someone where you're going and when you're expected to be back so a lot of times people think oh I'm just going for a short day hike I don't really need to do this but this is so easy it will take you 10 seconds you can leave a note for your roommate you can text your friend or a family member. It's just really good practice and it will give you some peace of mind when you're out on the trails that someone's got your back back at home tip number two is to make sure that everyone in your hiking group knows the route so if you're hiking with other people make sure you and all your hiking buddies know where you're intending to go how long the distance is and that they're just prepared for the hike if you're hiking with experienced hikers be an active participant in planning out that day so that you are aware and if for some reason you got separated you know where you are and where you're trying to go and you're gonna be good so just make sure everyone knows the plan tip number three is a pretty obvious one and that is to check the weather however know that the weather can change very quickly in the mountains and in the desert and so you just kind of want to know what that weather forecast is and then prepare with some extra layers in case that weather changes tip number four is be aware of local wildlife in the area that you're hiking so if you're hiking in bear country you probably want to carry some bear spray. In the desert which is where I am right now there are rattlesnakes and other things to consider so just make sure that you're prepared by knowing what animals and habit this land if you are gonna be hiking in the desert I actually have a separate video on tips for hiking in the desert which I will link to below because I'll also probably be helpful tip number five is to make sure you carry the ten essential systems I have another video that really dives deep into what the ten essential systems hiking our and some possible gear options you can bring from each but in short the systems include things like a headlamp a knife a way to start a fire extra clothing extra food a way to get more water if you run out things like that so it's really about being prepared and so if you find yourself in an unexpected situation you're going to be so glad that you have this stuff and for me it really just provides a nice peace of mind when you go out for a hike you know that you have all the essential things and lastly tip number six is to look up so I think a lot of beginner hikers tend to have their head down and they're just going along. I just want to remind you to make sure you stop be mindful take a look up take a deep breath just notice your senses the details on the trees things like that and just really have fun and experience nature so don't forget to do that all right so there we go with some quick tips for beginner hikers now as I mentioned in the beginning I really love this community my entire channel is all about hiking and backpacking and camping resources so that you can get outside more often so if you have any questions just let me know in the comments below I read them all I love hearing from you just make sure to subscribe so you don't miss a video and I'll see you in the next one.
