Solo Hiking – Safety Tips for Women! Training hike #2. Sandia Mountain Foothills


Training hike #2 and discussing Tips for Women hiking solo.
I love hiking solo but there are a few things I do every hike to feel safe.

I always let someone local know where I am going, what trail, time to return, and what I am wearing. Sending them a photo at trailhead is even better.
I always hike trail that I have hiked before, so I am familiar with trail conditions and know what to expect.
I always hike on a trail that has other hikers in area… just in case I need help.
I always take my hiking poles to use as a weapon against wildlife, free roaming dogs, and people who worry me.

  • Great advice for solo hikers. We're on the same page on how to protect ourselves when we're alone in a strange place, just because it's beautiful that doesn't mean there's no danger. I'm from Texas and I love the outdoors specially on a georgious weather. Great story though. Thanks.

  • I'd rather hike with one other person at an appropriate social distance. But haven't been able to find one. I've had a few surgeries in the past few years (knee, hip, and shoulder) so I'm not a fat as used to be. The hiking groups have too many people. Suggestions?
