Phoenix Public Library: Take a Hike, Do it Right!

Going outdoors is one of the key highlights of our City of Phoenix urban areas.

With over 41,000 acres managed that includes more than 200 trails, it is important to be prepared to navigate the land correctly and safely. The City of Phoenix continues to be concerned about the safety of hikers, whether they’re locals or tourists, along with the safety of city staff from park rangers to first responders who manage emergency situations on the trails. 

In this presentation we will learn about the specific areas available for a hike with difficulty ratings, mountain rescue performance, signage to follow to prevent getting lost, heat awareness during the year, keeping our furry friends safe on trails, and the implemented Take a Hike, Do it Right campaign with 8 steps to follow for your safety outdoors.

Presenter: Nicole Krupela, Park Ranger IIICity of Phoenix Parks and Recreation
