After hiking a big trail, there are a few things that hikers can do to recover and prepare for their next hike. First, take some time to relax and enjoy the view. Second, hydrate well before your hike so you’re not feeling thirsty or lightheaded while out in the wilderness. Third, make sure you have enough food and water with you on your hike in case of emergencies. Finally, be prepared for any weather conditions that may come up during your trip by packing appropriate gear such as rain gear or an emergency shelter.
