The desert areas of Southern California were hard; I told myself then that I never wanted to hike them again. We had to constantly be aware of where our next water source would be and many times carried three to four liters of water. And yet they had their own beauty they didn‘t last forever and they provided bonding experiences. They were also broken up with the snowy mountains and beautiful trees. The town stops were frequent and gave us time to relax with other hikers as well.
You also must take precautions when hiking up and down a hill. On the ascent you should loosely lace your boots around your ankles to provide ample room for movement. When going downhill you need to avoid jamming your toes by placing your heels in the back of the boots and tightly tying your laces around the ankles while leaving them loose at the toes. Use a hiking stick or trekking pole. These sticks help with balance and stability when going up or down an incline. They also provide an additional support to your legs reduce the knee pressure and help you support the upper body especially when you embark on a long trek.
But even though hiking can be fun there are also a number of precautions and survival tips one must take into consideration to avoid danger and stay safe. Among the more important tips is for one to hike in a group. It is much safer for one to hike in a group especially if it is on a nature trail you are unaccustomed to.
