From a small hike to a day-long adventure, many Utah families spend their day hiking. With many deaths this year, many families have been much more careful.

“I love hiking, being in the mountains, and seeing nature,” said Eden Rodriguez a 7th grader. While hiking can be really fun, you need to make sure you are being safe, here is a hiking tip that Eden would like to share “Always enjoy the view and have a good attitude about it. Be grateful for everything around you.”

According to http://www.goodhiker.com, Hiking is very healthy for your body! It gives you better bone health, improves our muscular fitness and can even help us sleep better at night. So if you don’t have any ideas of what to do in the perfect day, go hiking!

One hiking tip Clarissa, a 7th grader, had to offer was, 7th grade, was “Don’t pack too much stuff or it will be hard to climb.” If you bring too much stuff along on the hike, you may have to leave some things behind.

A few other hiking tips found at http://exotichikes.com/11-ways-to-stay-safe-while-hiking-what-every-hiker-should-know/ are to know your terrain, leave a note to of where you are going, and give animals their space.

While you should not pack too much stuff while hiking, there are some essentials that should be brought. “Wear comfortable shoes, layer your clothes, bring water, and bring a small backpack,” said Amy Valdez a 7th grade science teacher.
