Eating On The Trail
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you are eating on the trail. You should eat food that weighs the most first, such as fresh fruit, or a canned foods. This will lighten the pack early on instead of after hiking many miles with the additional weight. Also, try eating small quantities often. This will avoid stomach aches while hiking and also keep your energy level up through out the day. Before you begin a climb, stop and have a snack. This will give you an energy boost when you need it most.
