Hike Safety Tips

All hikers should be armed with sufficient health, self-care and hike safety knowledge to avoid encountering unnecessary problems in the bush. Before venturing off the beaten track, it is important to ensure you are well prepared with a hike safety plan and are carrying the correct safety equipment for all possible emergency situations.

We all need to consider hike safety and plan in advance a suitable route, clothing, equipment and food for our hiking party. Planning also ensures that we are aware of the skills of the group, potential difficulties or hazards and the accepted courses of action if and when problems arise.

The following articles aim to outline key safety steps you can take to ensure you and your hiking party return safely from every hike. Please feel free to comment and offer your own suggestions so that we can all be safer out there.
