It's spring in Central New York! Be sure you stay warm and hydrated! Will you have enough water for your hike? Do you have something warm if you get cold on your hike? You'll find trails muddy. Remember that it is colder in the higher elevations. Many streams are higher and may be dangerous to cross.
What if you get lost and have to stay overnight in the woods? Are you prepared for a frigid night in the woods?.
Be safe. Be prepared. It might save your life! Carry a day pack complete with plenty of food and water. You could also bring extra clothing, map and compass, first-aid kit, flashlight/headlamp, sun glasses, sun-block protection, ensolite pads, a stove and extra fuel, and bivy sack or space blankets. Matches?
Be safe while on your outdoor adventure. Be prepared out on the trails. Know how much daylight you have and how long your hike will take! Are you prepared for a night in the forest? Would you be ready? What's in your backpack? You can never be too prepared, even with a short hike.
Our GPS gives the sunset for the location we are at. Its a nice extra feature the Garmin eTrex Vista HCX has. Don't forget the extra batteries for your GPS and your flashlight! We use Rechargeable Batteries and usually have about 12-14 hours of life for the GPS (as long as you don't leave the backlight on). If using a GPS, don't forget to mark your parking area with a waypoint!!!
Use our Hiking Safety webpage to help you plan for a safe hiking adventure. Hike with your dog? We always have Scrappy our dog on a leash when ever we are hiking. You should too!
The NY-NJ Trail Conference released the newest trail map set for the Catskills on March 13, 2013. Buy the new Catskill Trails Map Set!
The NCTA is releasing a new guide book called The North Country Trail: The Best Walks, Hikes, and Backpacking Trips on America's Longest National Scenic Trail on April 29, 2013.
Thanks for using CNY Hiking to plan your next hike! Maybe we'll see ya on the trail!
Be sure to check yourself for ticks!
You can minimize your chances of exposure to ticks by following a few simple steps:
stay toward the center of trails and away from brush and unmowed grass
tuck pant legs inside socks and/or wear gaiters
wear light-colored clothing (makes spotting ticks easier)
use insect repellant (at least 40% deet) and don't forget to spray your pants, socks and boots as well.
Be sure to check yourself, and your pets, for ticks. Contact your health care provider if you find any attached to you.
Tips --> Wrap some duct tape on your hiking pole so you have it available for any emergency!
Throw some dryer lint in a zip lock baggie to use as a fire starter. Don't forget matches!
Do you have hand or foot warmers in your backpack?
Do you have enough water? What about a high energy snack?
Did you tell someone your hiking plans and when to expect you?
