Recommendations When Going Out On The Trails
- Travel with family, a friend or buddy, and be sure to take food and water.
- Wear the proper footwear and clothing such as closed toe shoes or boots and have a rain jacket in your daypack.
- Be sure to stop at the park office to pick up or purchase a trail map. Talk to the park staff or rangers to ask about the trail conditions and any tips you need to be aware of on that trail.
- Be sure to let others know what your schedule is, where you will be at on the trail and when you should be back.
- If needed, log in at the trailhead or secure overnight permits if backpacking.
