Kind of going off my post yesterday about what to bring to make sure you are totally prepared, I want to stress the fact that although it is rare, accidents can definitely happen when you are out on the trails and it is really important to acknowledge and respect that fact.
I am not a professional hiker by any means and just created this page in a small attempt to get people a little motivated to get out there an enjoy nature. Take everything I talk about on here with a grain of salt and know that I am just like you.
If you are not experienced with the wilderness and want to give the lifestyle a chance, just make sure you start off small in your town and go to a local park or trail that you know you won’t get lost in. It is important to just stick to the trail and not wander off the path in order to make your hike back as simple as possible.
Just like anything else in the world you should always start small and gradually work your way up to bigger trails and eventually you can start traveling the country and seeing all of the beautiful scenery that it has to offer and let me tell you, there is a lot to see. You will never be bored exploring a new trail in a different state. There is something about seeing other parts of the country far away from your comfort zone and just embracing it.
