It really depends on the hike you’re planning to take and your personal preferences. If you’ll be hiking in hot weather, you might want to shower beforehand to stay cool and prevent sweat from building up on your skin. If you’re hiking in cold weather, a shower could make you feel more comfortable by warming you up before you head out into the cold. Ultimately, it’s up to you whether or not to shower before a hike – just do whatever feels best for you!
