National Parks: A Few Tips Before Traveling

Unfortunately, every year, hundreds of people will venture out into national parks ill-prepared and underequipped, which places them in dangerous situations.

 

There is a lot that goes into planning any hiking, backpacking, or camping trip. However, newbie adventurers who feel short on time might opt out of the necessary research required for safe traveling.

 

So, here are several things to keep in mind before planning a trip to a National Park.

 

Leave-No-Trace

Become an expert on leave-no-trace practices. National parks are beautiful places to explore, but they are home to many creatures that depend on fragile ecosystems.

Bear Protection

Bear bells and bear mace are essential in deterring unwanted attention from these apex predators. Become familiar with storing food properly, and remember to eat a proper distance from the sleeping area.

 

Water

Having access to freshwater is essential to survival. Bring methods of cleaning water of microscopic parasites and other toxins.
