Hiking is a great way to get exercise and a fun way to enjoy nature. Stay on the marked tracks or trails, get a map if you can. There are a few tips you should do before leaving to make your walk safer and more enjoyable.

A hiking checklist is also included to use as a guide. For a day hike. pack your backpack with suitable equipment, depending on the type of terrain and weather conditions. Take plenty of water and food, like fruit, energy bars, lunch etc. Take a small first aid kit with bandaids, bandages, insect repellent, pain relief tablets, sun cream, a sun hat or beanie, sunglasses etc. Wear appropriate clothing, short or long pants, shirt and a jumper if required.

Wear comfortable hiking boots or runners for a short hike and wear thick socks to cushion your feet as you walk and climb. Remember it can rain when you don’t expect it at least take a disposable poncho if you don’t want to carry waterproofs.

If you are going for more than a day you will need a lot more equipment use the checklist below as a guide.

Hiking Checklist

Water and Food – Fruit, energy snacks, dehydrated meals and meat etc

Must Haves – Sunglasses, LED torch and spare batteries, pocket multi tool, matches in waterproof container, compass, whistle, maps, extra clothes, raingear if required,

Before you leave notify a responsible person and if you are in a National Park notify the Ranger or Park staff of your intended hike.
