Hiking and backpacking get you up close and personal with the great outdoors.  You notice the small things; the lichen growing on the trees, the tiny mammal footprints crossing the trail in front of you, the sound of scolding chipmunks.

Hikers are advised to carry plenty of water and snacks for day hikes. Consider carrying a water filter or be prepared to boil surface water as all water sources should be considered contaminated with micro-organisms that can make you ill.  Wear shoes with good support and be aware of wildlife and insects in the area.  

Each area is unique and offers opportunities for all levels of hiking.  So what are you waiting for, get out there and start walking.  The journey is its own reward!
