Pumped for First Solo Hike!

by Lindsay

I just planned my first solo overnight hike. I've done a lotta trips with both all-women and mixed-sex hiking, but can't wait to put my (teeny tiny list of) skills to the test :-)

My biggest fear is hurting myself...so I've made sure my 20mi loop has multiple entry-and exit locations and is close to the ranger station. I've already checked in with them and they're pumped to have a solo female hiker to kick off the start of the busy season :-)

I think anyone who is considering it should go! It's a fabulous way to simultaneously get in touch with nature and your true self. I'll have a list of dos and don'ts for all my fellow hikers when I get back!

How did it go? I'm in Michigan and considering solo hiking myself. Do you mind sharing where you hiked?

Thanks and hope it was fun!
