Autumn Hiking

By Ultimate, Oct 18 2017 03:00PM

Autumn weather is perfect for hikes. Stay safe with these tips:

Plantar fasciitis and stress fractures can occur when normally sedentary people significantly increase their activity levels. It is best to gradually increase the intensity, duration and distance to avoid injuries.

Everyone should warm up their muscles before they start hiking. Special attention should be paid to calf muscles, hamstrings and achilles tendons.

Hikers should wear closed-toed shoes with good support to reduce the chance of injuries.
