Be Prepared To Walk
Walkalong has put together some suggestions to help provide you with a safe and amazing walking experience!
avoid cotton- choose wool or synthetics instead
dress in layers
dress for the weather! Check ahead!
avoid wearing new boots on your hike, be sure to break them in at home first on short walks
don’t allow hot spots to develop, speak up and tape up!
wear light colors
tuck in and/or use gators
use a pack with two padded straps and go light!
ALWAYS bring along any medications, inhalers, epipens that you have/need and please let your guide know that you use them and where you packed them!
When walking please avoid:
- roots, branches, sticks… They can roll and are slippery!
- wet/mossy rocks… They are slippery as well and may shift!
