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.
