023 - Trail Etiquette

April 12, 2017

Like any pastime there are a number of rules of behaviour (etiquette)that help to make the experience better for all participants. Unlike driving on the road these rules aren't taught in any formal manner rather new hikers are somehow expected to absorb them from the ether. This works well if they are hiking in groups and can observe them from other more experienced hikers but this is not always the case.

This episode discusses the commonly accepted 'rules of the road' for hiking to help you get the best out of your time on the trail.
