WAYS TO GET ENERGY (AND KEEP IT) ON A HIKE

The forest is alive and the sun is out, which means it’s peak summer hiking season. All those alpine lakes and sunset views are waiting for you at the end of a beautiful trail through the trees. Wanting to set your personal record for the longest hike you’ve ever embarked on? Or maybe you want to try summiting a mountain you’ve had your eye on for the past year? We’ve got some great tips and tricks for how to capture that energy (and keep it up!) on a hike.

Prep Your Body

If you have a day set aside for your long hike, make sure to prep beforehand. Make sure you mentally and physically prepare yourself. Ideally, start prepping a week before your hike. When you set out on the trail you’ll feel ready to go. Eating the right foods, getting enough sleep, and training will set you up for success.

Eat the Right Foods

Eating the right foods is key to feeling energized for your hike. That means protein-rich meals, fruits, veggies, and even carbs from rice or pasta. Make sure you’re getting enough calories throughout the week, so your body doesn’t feel depleted during your hike. Now you also have a good excuse to eat a little extra mac and cheese!
