Safety & Education
Summer recreation is fun and exciting, but it can also be challenging and dangerous. Whether you’re going for a hike, a bike ride, a paddle, or fishing, Hike Smart NY can help you prepare with a list of 10 essentials, guidance on what to wear, and tips for planning your trip with safety and sustainability in mind.
Before every hike you should check the weather for the location you will be visiting. If there are thunderstorms in the forecast for that day or night, change or delay your plans. Do not risk getting caught in a thunderstorm on a mountain trail or a waterbody.
