Hike Smart This Fall! Part 2

There’s nothing like relaxing after a long hike. The tired muscles, satisfaction, and fun memories make sitting in front of a roaring fire incredibly wonderful. Steamboat Springs offers extensive hiking and biking trails, and fall is one of the best times to explore them. It’s not too hot; it’s not too cold, and the trees are gorgeous. The last thing you want is to encounter trouble! The good news is, there are some simple things you can do to ensure that your hike goes smoothly and you safely end up back in your lodgings. Make sure you check out our last blog for the first two tips!

Bring Water

  • We know that spur-of-the-moment hikes are fun; there’s nothing like running to the hills! You might just be going on a short hike and be completely confident on where you’re going. It doesn’t matter! Colorado is dry, and the mountains are unpredictable. Never assume it will be a quick out-and-back. Never assume you can make it without water. Bring more than enough water every time you head out on a trail!

Know Where Help Is

  • Many hiking trails feature side trails you can use to get back to a road or wilderness stop. Learn all you can about your chosen trail. That way, if you get injured, you will know your options.
  • If you’re enjoying a spontaneous hike, stay aware of your surroundings and watch for buildings, side trails, and other helpful landmarks. This way, if something goes wrong, you will at least have a place to start getting assistance. This is extremely important if you are hiking alone!
