Hiking 101

Tomorrow, June 5, hikers will celebrate National Trails Day, an annual recognition of the recreation opportunities and preservation needs within green spaces. For those new to hiking, perhaps the celebration will spark a new interest; the American Hiking Society's (AHS) Hiking 101 portal is a great resource for those looking to get started. Home to information on everything from hiking etiquette to outdoor gear, the site has answers to many common questions. Resources are organized into five sections: Before You Go, Outdoor Skills, Gear, Safety & First Aid, and All About Trails. An especially important section of the site, found within the All About Trails category, discusses racism in outdoor spaces and provides antiracism resources, as well as a list of individuals and organizations to support. These materials, and all of the offerings on the Hiking 101 page, contribute to AHS's mission of "empowering all to enjoy, share, and preserve the hiking experience."
