After a hike, your body will likely feel tired and sore. Depending on the length and intensity of the hike, you may also experience muscle aches and fatigue. In extreme cases, hikers can develop heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to rest and drink plenty of fluids to replenish lost fluids and electrolytes.
