One of the best ways to stay safe while hiking is to take your excursions with a number of people. The more hikers you have on your adventure, the more eyes there are to watch out for treacherous terrain. In the event of an emergency, there are also more people available to assist. Ideally, each member of your hiking team should have some kind of basic First Aid training. Besides, while group hikes are a great way to protect yourself against any hiking dangers, they're also a lot of fun!
