There are some general guidelines that can help you decide if you’re pushing yourself too hard on the trails.

If you’re feeling excessively fatigued, short of breath, or lightheaded, it’s probably time to take a break. It’s also important to listen to your body and be aware of any aches or pains that may be developing. If you start to experience any sharp pain, dizziness, nausea, or chest pain, stop hiking immediately and seek medical attention.

Hiking is a great way to get exercise and enjoy the outdoors, but it’s important to know your limits. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that you stay safe and healthy while enjoying the trails.
