There are a few common mistakes that hikers make, and they can lead to some serious injuries. Here are four of the most common:
1. Not taking the time to properly prepare for your hike. Make sure you have enough water, food, and gear before you go out, so you don’t have to waste time on the trail later on.
2. Not following proper hiking etiquette. Don’t walk in front of people or startle wildlife; be aware of your surroundings at all times and let others pass if they need to go ahead.
3. Hiking too fast or too slow going too fast can cause fatigue quickly, while hiking slowly can lead to injury from slipping or getting lost in the wilderness environment.
4. Not wearing proper clothing even if it’s hot outside, wear sunscreen and hats when hiking in order not only protect yourself from the sun but also from rain or snowfall while out there in nature!
