Health Tip: Prepare for Hiking
Make sure you're in shape

(HealthDay News) -- Even hiking to enjoy nature has its rules and safety precautions.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation offers these tips:

  • Make sure you're in good physical shape before tackling a challenging trail.
  • Tell a friend or family member where you're going and when, so you can be reached in case of emergency.
  • Hike with at least one buddy.
  • Learn to identify and avoid common poisonous plants.
  • Learn the safety and behavior rules that apply to the area where you'll hike.
