But it's important to make sure you're dressed properly for your adventure.
The American Council on Exercise offers this advice before you hit the trails:
- Wear a quality pair of sturdy trail running shoes; don't wear regular running shoes.
- Wear socks made of synthetic fibers in case your feet get wet, and to reduce the risk of blisters.
- Dress in layers that will help wick moisture away from your body and keep you cool and dry as you change altitude.
- Bring a sturdy pole to help you navigate the terrain.
