How to Prepare for Your First Hiking Trip

Here are tips to help prepare for your first hiking trip.

The first thing to do is get into good physical condition. We started to hit the walking trails in the park six months before our vacation. In the beginning phase, we walked three miles per day five days per week and then increased that to nearly five miles per day. If you live in a place where there are no hills then you can wear a hiking backpack with weights inside it to make the walk more difficult. This will better prepare you for mountain hiking and rock climbing. Walking up and down stairs or the bleachers at your local high school is very good for strengthening your leg muscles.

Strength training is an absolute must. A little weightlifting is perfect for that. A great idea would be to carry a set of dumbbells in your backpack as you walk in the park and then use those dumbbells to do strength exercises in the park as you enjoy the sound of the birds singing and just being in the great outdoors.

My daughter and I hiked during the daytime hours but slept indoors at night so our equipment needs were light as we not camp outdoors or take a tent or sleeping bags. We took too much on our first hiking trip and had to carry extra so we will lighten the load drastically on our next trip.

If you are hitting the hiking trails in a hot place then you might prefer to wear a tank top and shorts. We were hiking in Vermont in late September and early October so it was cold and a little rainy on the trails. Hiking pants are a wonderful wardrobe addition because they can be worn as long pants when it's cold, and as the temperature rises you just unzip them at the knee and they become hiking shorts. Each day, I wore a tank top with a T-shirt on top of that and a fleece-lined hoodie. We took rain ponchos from our local dollar store. This worked great. They only cost a couple of dollars. We wore them when it rained, and also spread them out on the ground to sit on at lunch time next to a beautiful lake or stream or waterfall when it was not raining. We also took a sweater cap and gloves. My daughter used hers quite a bit, but I did not use mine as much.

The most important things to remember are to get good hiking boots, hiking socks and moleskin to apply to any blisters on your feet.

A day pack is large enough to carry all equipment needed for a day trip. It will hold your water bottles, compass, Swiss army knife, lunch, trail mix, camera, sunscreen, sunglasses, insect repellent, wet wipes and any other miscellaneous items.

Hiking poles are a necessity. Mine were lost at the airport the first day of our trip, and I had a very difficult hike that day. The poles help to keep you steady and to reduce the potential of slipping or falling.

Be sure to take a minimum of two bottles of water per person because not having enough hydration can lead to dangerous consequences.

With the proper preparation, hiking is a fun and rewarding experience for the entire family, although you will need to adjust the length and difficulty of your hikes if you are taking younger children along. Just preparing for the trip will make you healthier. Get out there and enjoy the outdoors. It is good for the spirit.
