If you are actually interested in doing adventures and have done one or two earlier, you should essentially take certain safety measures.
Here are few safety measures that you have to essentially follow, when hiking alone.
Prefer popular hiking trails: Actually, solo hiking is not preferable, but if you are really excited about solo hiking, prefer popular hiking sites.
Stick to your plan: Don’t ever try to change your plan when you are taking a hiking trial. Don’t vary or alter the route you are planning, unless it is not safe for your trail.
Stay in contact with family members or friends: Be sure to inform members or other known persons that you are going to take a hiking trial. If at all there are any changes in your plan, inform your family members regarding the changes, so that they don’t feel tensed.
Make sounds and join groups: When you are hiking by making noise, it will let the wild life present to be aware of the hikers. Most of the time bears tend to wait many minutes after a long group has passed their way. So, to avoid dangers from wild life, follow or join hiking groups.
