The main thing is the right equipment. Make sure you have good quality shoes, a hat and sunscreen in advance. Bring a waterproof jacket or raincoat. The weather in the mountains is different from that in the city.
Don't forget a flashlight. The journey back may take place at dusk, without good lighting, so it is recommended to either take a powerbank or a good battery-powered flashlight with you.
Warn your loved ones about the route. Before you set off, tell someone you know: where you are going and when you plan to return.
Don't go hiking alone. The main danger of a solo hike is the risk of injury. In this case, victims rely only on their own strength.
Study the weather. Do not go to the mountains in conditions of frost, heavy rain and increased windiness.
Avoid tick bites. The most optimal period for hiking is the beginning of June and the end of October. April-May and August-September are periods of high tick activity, so take appropriate precautions - do not leave exposed skin and use repellents.
Follow the checklist of things you need on a hike: sunglasses; headdress (cap, Panama, bandana); 1 liter of drinking water; provisions (sandwiches, chocolate bars, nuts and dried fruits); anti-tick spray; sun cream; painkillers; hydrogen peroxide and bandage.
