Top 3 Adventure Hacks
1) Be properly dressed. Get ready for adventure!
Foremost, it is important to know the nature of the trail prior the hike for you to be able to wear the appropriate outfit. Wear cotton or comfortable clothing during warm walks and hikes however avoid wearing it in the cold. Cotton keeps moisture close to the skin, making you cold.
2) Wear long pants for protection.
Trails may go through dense forests. Long pants not only protect your legs from ticks or poison oak but also from mosquitoes. Thick pants also prevent animal bites from penetrating your skin.
3) Wear appropriate footwear.
Trail shoes are best for short and easy trailing but hiking boots is recommended for technical hikes.
