More Safety Tips for Hikers

Seems like all the southern papers are publishing articles about Trail safety. Or, more accurately, only southern papers. Here's an article from the Chattanooga Times Free Press. Written by Angie Herrington, titled "Managing risks part of hiking," and published 12 January 2008.

Herrington spoke to and quoted a number of people representing hiking clubs, the National Park Service, and a rescue organization. Their advice boils down to the same common sense advice we've know for years ... but some of us may have tended to ignore as we bank miles and hours of safe travel on the Appalachian Trail and elsewhere.
