Apart from your hiking boots there are other forms of equipment needed for you hike. If you plan on embarking on a day hike you will need hiking socks water purifying tablets (if you are not carrying your own water) a back pack walking stick traction devices rescue beacons signaling gear Avalanche probes (if you will be on snow covered hilly terrain) jackets binoculars first aid kit a compass sunscreen and food. For an overnight hike you will require a tent sleeping bag camp stoves rain gear matches a Swiss army knife and a flashlight. Get a map of the route you plan on taking. If you plan to hike alone or with one another person notify your family (or a ranger if you are hiking through a park) on the place where you will be and the time you expect to return. That way someone can come looking for you if you are in trouble or just simply lost.
Belay Device. If you are worried about falling while mountain hiking then you should essentially carry a belay device with you. A belay device is a small unit with two slots through which the rope is fed. If you are not hiking alone then using a belay device will allow you to hike above or below your hiking partner. If you are hiking above your hiking partner then you can pull back on the rope if hiking partner begins falling or vice versa.
Another very important piece of hiking gear that you should never forget to have is a pair of hiking boots or shoes. A lot of people do not realize that wearing hiking boots or shoes instead of the ordinary sneakers or sandals is not only comfortable but will also keep a hiker safer. Since hiking shoes are specially designed for hiking terrains they protect your feet and ankles from possible injuries in case the trail is slippery or a little rough for hiking. In case of a slight fall or slip the toughness and good design of these shoes or boots can keep you safe and make hiking on rough terrains much easier too.
