Like any pastime there are a number of rules of behaviour that help make the experience better for all participants. Unlike driving on the road, these rules aren’t taught in any formal manner rather new hikers are somehow expected to absorb them from the ether. This works well if you are hiking in groups and can observe more experienced hikers but this is not always possible.
This episode discusses the commonly accepted ‘rules of the road’ for hiking to help you get the best out of your time on the trail.
