Things to think about before hitting the woods

Before any backpacking or camping trip, it is very important to get a good map and become familiar with the area you are planning to enter. If you are backpacking, plan a route. Does your trail loop you back to your starting point, or do you need to leave another vehicle at a predetermined spot. Do you have to back track? Is there plenty of water available. How difficult is the terrain? Also, be sure to tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return. If possible, hike with a friend and check in with the park ranger. In case of an emergency, they will be able to locate you easier. In some areas animals like bears and snakes can be a concern. Ask your park ranger for any information that may pertain to where you are going to be camping,.
