Respect the Mountains – Hike Safe – Hike Smart

Categories: Midd Blogosphere
  • Respect the mountains. Plan your hike so you avoid sensitive vegetation and areas that may be damaged due to trail erosion from spring runoff.  Visit the Green Mountain Club website for hiking suggestions and current trail status reports at http://www.greenmountainclub.org/.

 

  • Hike safe. Wear boots that will keep your feet dry and warm. Dress like an onion, in layers. 1. Wear a wicking base layer. 2. Wear one or two insulated and ventilation layers for warmth. Cotton does not work well. 3. Wear a rain and wind protection outer layer.

 

  • At high elevation, weather changes are common and can be severe. Don’t get caught in sneakers, shorts, and a T-shirt.

 

  • Hike smart. Do some research and prepare for the worst-case scenario.  Hikers can get lost so be prepared for a night in the mountains. There is no guarantee you will find a cell signal. Bring the following essential items with you so you are well prepared:
    • Water
    • Map and compass
    • Extra wool or synthetic clothes
    • Rain gear
    • Knife
    • Matches or other fire starter
    • Flashlight or headlamp
    • First aid kit with any medicines you take regularly
    • Extra food
    • Sun protection (hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen)

 

  • Leave your valuables at home. The Vermont State Police warn against leaving valuables in cars at trail head parking lots because of frequent thefts from cars at these locations.
