Make sure you're in shape
(HealthDay News) -- Even hiking to enjoy nature has its rules and safety precautions.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation offers these tips:
Make sure you're in good physical shape before tackling a challenging trail. Tell a friend or family member where you're going and when, so you can be reached in case of emergency. Hike with at least one buddy. Learn to identify and avoid common poisonous plants. Learn the safety and behavior rules that apply to the area where you'll hike.
