Hiking health and hygiene

Your guide to a clean and healthy adventure

When you’re out hiking, taking care of your health and practicing good hygiene is more important than you might think. I’ve learned from my own adventures that staying clean, drinking enough water, and handling waste responsibly can make or break your outdoor experience. Proper hydration and hygiene, like washing your hands, can keep those pesky trail-side illnesses at bay. When we follow Leave No Trace principles by packing out our trash and handling nature’s call properly, we’re not only taking care of ourselves but also showing love and respect for the beautiful wilderness we’re exploring. So, keep yourself and the great outdoors in tip-top condition by making hiking health and hygiene a top priority on your next adventure! Here’s a few tips.
