Never enter the vehicle of someone you meet on the trail. It’s best to bring a buddy not only to infrequently traveled or remote areas but also to urban areas. • Stay hydrated. Georgia heat and humidity can sometimes be brutal, and a little exertion can quickly have you sweating. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty; instead drink plenty of water throughout the hike, and at regular intervals. • Always carry food and water whether you are planning to go overnight or not. Food will give you energy, help keep you warm, and sustain you in an emergency situation until help arrives.

Don’t miss the trees for the forest. Shorter hikes allow you to stop and linger more than long hikes do. Something about staring at the front end of a 10-mile trek naturally pushes you to speed up. That said, take close notice of the elevation maps that accompany each hike. If you see many ups and downs over large altitude changes, you’ll obviously need more time. Inevitably, you’ll finish some of the hikes long before (or after) the estimated hiking time. Nevertheless, leave yourself plenty of time for those moments when you simply feel like stopping and taking it all in.
