Healthy Outdoor Activity Tips

It’s no secret that much of North America is feeling the heat this July. If you’re heading out on the trail it’s crucial to stay hydrated. And packing healthy snacks can help you maintain energy and alertness whether it’s a day hike or overnighter.

Once you choose your destination, it’s a good idea to research the site (especially if planning a full-day hike.) Call the park office. Where might emergency water be found nearby? Streams contain bacteria and parasites. So never drink directly from a stream or spring without some type of water purification device.

A few good hydration tips for hot days include: Before beginning, drink a cup or two of water. Limit your caffeinated drinks (coffee, colas) because caffeine increases fluid loss. Alcoholic drinks also cause dehydration. And remember to drink about one quart of fluid per hour.
Hiking while dehydrated can lead to serious health issues, including heat stroke, muscle breakdown, and kidney failure.

Food is also important. Packing light (if possible) makes hot weather treking easier. You don’t want to carry too much. And make sure that the foods you take can handle the heat.
