Hit the trails for a morning hike

 
Get in good with Mother Nature this Earth Day by taking your gals on a hike. Not only is it an awesome way to explore a part of your area you’ve yet to see, but it’s also an ah-mazing way to get in a li’l sweat sesh. Kick things off right with 411-packed invites. Suggest items to wear and bring along along with the usual who/what/where/when deets.
 
Pick a spot: Depending on where you live, you could have a whole plethora of options available to you. National and state parks are a great place to begin your search. Take note of the difficulty level of the hike you choose—and the fitness level of your friends and chaperone. You want everyone to have a good time!
 
What to wear: Nix the ruffles and fancy pants and throw on a pair of old jeans, a comfy t-shirt and sturdy sneakers or hiking boots. Slather on the sunscreen, toss your hair in a pony (or cute braids), and get a move on!
 
Pack your bag: Make sure someone in your party is toting a first aid kid, including band-aids and bandages, an antibiotic ointment and pain relievers. Other items to stow in your backpack? Sunscreen, a water bottle, a map and a compass or a GPS, your cell phone and a camera.
 
Before you go: Make sure to eat a good breakfast packed with protein and good carbs. If you and your chicas are caravanning to your hiking location, meet up earlier to have some munchies together. Omelets with toast or Greek yogurt smoothies are tasty options
 
Recharge: Midway through your hike, find a scenic spot to take a breather and refuel. Homemade granola bars, trail mix, dried fruit and all-natural PB&J sammies are tasty snacks everyone’ll enjoy. Yum!
