Getting ready for a hike

The hiker towards himself

Safety, autonomy, self-fulfillment

  • Plans his or her hike in terms of length, difficulty and load to be carried according to his or her physical abilities and endurance
  • Informs him/herself about the weather conditions, potential dangers (hunting, wild animals, scree)
  • Carry a first aid kit, a map of the trail, as well as adequate supplies and equipment depending on whether or not there is access to drinking water, fire and night shelter, as well as in case of rain
  • Registers at one of our two reception points and/or takes his access rights; if solo, informs his family of his route and his return and brings his cell phone
  • Respect the signs and regulations

The hiker towards others

Respect, share, support

  • Respect the right of others (humans and animals) to silence and privacy
  • Help a person in difficulty to overcome obstacles and difficult sections (torrents, windfalls, rocks)
  • Never leave a person alone behind
  • Assists and cares for the injured, even if it means changing your route
  • Shares water, food, and blankets when another person is short of them

The hiker and the environment

Protection, responsibility, legacy

  • Do not stray from the trail for the protection of the flora (and your safety); avoid trampling moss and lichen if the trail crosses rocks
  • Do not pick plants, roots, dead wood or rocks, and do not feed animals (rodents, birds)
  • Do not leave behind any waste; for natural needs, in the absence of facilities, respect the regulatory distance from points and waterways and bury tracks
  • Camp in permitted locations
  • Avoid unnecessary fires, even when permitted, and preferably use a stove for cooking
  • Report any broken installations (bridges, ropes and chains, markers) and the presence of abandoned waste to the people in charge of the walking area, if they cannot take it away
