17 Tips On Backpacking For Beginners The Wandering Queen

Just Now

1. Backpacking Tips: Training. Always train for your backpacking trip. Backpacking can be difficult, and if you just go out and trek without ever hiking before or doing any cardio, you might be miserable.
2. Packing Too Much Gear. I feel like packing for backpacking is one of the hardest things to do as a beginner. When I started backpacking, all my equipment was super heavy.
3. Pick The Correct Mileage and Elevation Gain. If you want to enjoy your trip, I highly recommend to sit and think about the mileage and elevation gain. What is the max amount of mileage you can do on a day hike?
4. Navigation Skills. Make sure to understand basic navigation skills in case you get lost. Always carry a physical map and compass and know how to use them.
5. Protect Against Animals Eating Your Food. Bears are some of my favorite animals in the world. That is why this tip is crucial to me. Do NOT let animals eat your food.
6. Wearing Smelly Products. I know it is awesome to smell nice all the time. I love smelling like a fresh bouquet of flowers. But you know what else loves the smell of flowers?
7. Test Your Gear. Always test your gear before you head out to the backcountry. That includes tents, headlamps, stoves, a two-way satellite, sleeping pads, etc.
8. Check The Weather. Always check the weather before your trip. Even if the weather says it will be hot and sunny every day, ALWAYS bring layers, an insulated jacket, and a rain jacket.
9. Plan Your Trip. Always plan your backpacking trips. Always. Backpacking is not the time to just “wing it”. The times to “wing it” are when you are day hiking (but still bring the ten essentials), or exploring a brand new city.
10. Bring Enough Water. This is one of the most important lessons that I learned on a backpacking trip through Utah. You always need to bring enough water! When we went to Canyonlands National Park, we saw rivers in the map that looked like a water source.
