Above all, make sure you have plenty of water and be conscious of the heat. If you are planning a long hike, especially in summer, an early start is a good idea. Leave the trail before temperatures become too excessive. The park recommends bringing at least one gallon of water per day, per person. Protect your skin with big shade hats, loose-fitting clothes and ample sunscreen. The park asks you to leave pets at home and off the trails for both their safety and the safety of wildlife. For more safety tips, visit the National Park Service's website.
