I'm going hiking

I'm going hiking with my mom this Saturday. Super stoked! I have been wanting to go hiking for a long time.

Does anyone like to go hiking? Any advice?


I love to go hiking! You don't say where you're going, but be sure to check the weather forecast and dress appropriately. If it may be cool, a sweatshirt that's easy to take off and tie around your waist works well. Be sure to take sunscreen, a hat, insect repellant, water, and some kind of snack. Also recommended: field glasses/bionoculars and small, easy-to-carry nature guides (wild flowers, birds, etc.). Also a camera! Comfortable shoes with the right socks are a must, too. Have fun and let us know how it goes!

Wear the right shoes for where you're going.  If you're going to be climbing on rocks, bring shoes for that.  If you're going to be in a forest, wear shoes for that.
