The Hikers Resposability Code:

You are Resposable for yourself, so be prepared:

  1. With knowledge and gear.
    • Become Self Reliant by learning about the terrain, conditions, local weather, and your equipment before your start.
  2. To leave Your Plans.
    • Tell someone were you are going, the trails you are hiking, when you will return, and your emergency plans.
  3. To Stay Together.
    • When you start as a group, hike as a group, end as a group.  Pace your hike to the slowest person.
  4. To Turn Back.
    • Weather changes quickly.  Fatigue and unexpected conditions can also affect your hike.  Know your limitations and when to postpone your hike.  The trail will be there tomorrow.
  5. For Emergencies,
    • even if you are headed out for just an hour.  An injury, severe weather, or a wrong turn could become life-threatening.  Don't assume you will be rescued; know how to rescue yourself. 
  6. To Share this code with others.
