Hiking 101

Southlake is home to several parks and trails that can be explored year-round. Whether you’re a first-time hiker or a nature lover, taking a hike can help boost your mood, de-stress and enhance your overall well-being.

Although spending time in the good ole outdoors is a convenient way to improve your health, a level of preparation is required.

Below are five tips to get you started:

  1. Bring a water bottle – staying hydrated is essential when working out.
  2. Wear closed toe shoes – wearing closed toe shoes helps to protect your toes and provides sturdy ankle support for the journey ahead.
  3. Bring a buddy – buddies can help navigate, take pictures and keep you safe.
  4. Stay on the trail – staying on trail allows you to navigate safely and away from unknown threats.
  5. Dress in layers – dressing in layers can protect the body from inclement weather.
