Preparing for a Hike

Hiking Basics

For Roxbury trails, which are between .85 and 3 miles long, the following are recommendations to be prepared:

– wear appropriate footwear, such as sneakers or hiking boots
– bring water and snack
– bring cell phone (service may be spotty on the trails)
– tick spray

Remember to:

– tell someone where you are going and when you will be back
– leave no trace; carry out what you brought in
– feel free to bring a bag to collect any litter
– clean up after your dog
– in an emergency, contact 911
– avoid poison ivy; leaves of three, let it be!
