 Hiking in the Time of Coronavirus (코로나 바이러스 기간동안 등산에 대해서)  
 

Hiking in the Time of Coronavirus

This page will be updated as lands reopen to recreation.


At Washington Trails Association, we understand the value of community. During these challenging and uncertain times, we want to help take care of our community and the things we hold in common. As a nonprofit supported by hikers like you, we know the immense value of getting outside. We know the physical and mental benefits of being in nature are vital right now. 

In order to protect our community and ourselves, its important to be discerning about when and how we choose to leave our homes. With that in mind, here are some suggestions to help you get outside responsibly. The situation is changing quickly, and we will update this page as best practices for public health evolve.

Recreating responsibly as lands reopen

Some of the tips below apply as trails and public lands reopen to the public.

PHYSICAL DISTANCING (물리적 거리두기)

This can be hard on some of Washingtons most beloved trails. Right now, this is the most important consideration for public health: If you cant maintain six feet or more from other hikers, pick another place to hike. 

Take your cues from the parking lot. Is it more than half full? If so, youll likely have company on trail, too. If you cant find somewhere to park, its time to head to another trailhead. Find one using WTAs Trailblazer App. If you do go elsewhere, be sure to notify whoever you left your hiking itinerary with of the change. 

Note: Continue to hike with people you are already in physical contact with, like family or housemates. This is not the time to meet up with your hiking friends. Right now, we also advise against transit or carpooling.

PASSING ON TRAIL (크레일에서 서로 지나칠 때)

Currently, it seems that as long as youre briefly passing one another, risk of transmission is low, but its still a good idea to still give fellow hikers a wide berth. Here are the steps you can take to pass each other quickly and courteously.

    • Let them know youd like to pass. If you are coming up from behind them, a polite: "Coming up on your right (or left)!" works well. If youre coming towards each other, make eye contact. Trail etiquette states the person going uphill has right of way, but not everyone knows this. If theres confusion, communicate with each other. 
    • Pass with as much space between each group as possible. Try to step aside in a place where you can get well out of the way of each other. 
    • Cover your mouth as you pass. Use a buff, a bandanna, or a mask. 
    • Acknowledge them. Say a quick "thank you!" once youve passed. 

MASKS OR FACE COVERINGS (마스크 또는 얼굴 가리개)

While theyre not currently mandated in Washington state, we recommend having a mask or face covering on you when you step on trail. Think of them as a supplement to physical distancing. Using a mask doesnt replace the value of staying 6+ feet apart from other hikers, but theyre a courtesy; having your mouth and nose covered when around other people protects them from any particles you may be breathing out, Consider this an opportunity to show off your buffs and bandannas that are probably as desperate for some time outside as you are. 

BATHROOMS: BE PREPARED (화장실을 미리 가둘 것)

Expect trailhead facilities to be closed. Go before you leave home, and bring supplies to manage things if nature calls while youre out there. If necessary, brush up on how to poop in the woods. If you wipe after a pee, save your toilet paper and go a more sustainable route: get a Kula cloth. Purchasing this design even gives a few bucks back to WTA.

Hand Sanitizer: Hopefully youre already carrying this for bathroom breaks, but these days, bring a little extra. Be sure to use it before eating any snacks, and if youve touched anything like a bench or a railing at a waterfall overlook. Tip: Some travel hand sani bottles come with a carrying case you can attach to your backpack shoulder strap. Hanging it there makes it much easier to access. 


Keep Each Other Safe (서로가 안전을 유지한다.)

Changes like this can be hard to adapt to. But by recreating responsibly and making some changes to your hiking approach right now will keep us all safer and healthier. Together, well get through this.

Here are some more tips to help you make the best decision for how to get outside right now. 

BEFORE YOU LEAVE (하이킹을 떠나기 전)

    • Plan to hike lesser-traveled trails. Do your best to avoid trails where the main attraction is a viewpoint or other area that would serve as a likely gathering point for many people. (Nows not the time to hit up Rattlesnake Ledge or Oyster Dome). If you get to a trailhead and you see its crowded, use WTAs Trailblazer App to find another location, or save your hike for another day. 
    • Verify your destination is open. Washingtons state lands are reopening, but because of personnel limitations, not all sites will be open on May 5. And other land managers may have elected to keep their trails closed. Check our Hiking Guide or the sidebar above for current closures.
    • Plan on any ranger stations, park buildings, restrooms and facilities to be closed.
    • Think ahead about what youll need so you wont have to stop for supplies. While we often encourage hikers to shop local and contribute to the recreation economy in rural communities, doing so right now could deplete the resources of smaller communities. Gas up before you go, bring all the food you need and be prepared to follow Leave No Trace Principles, including properly dealing with human waste. For now, this precaution also applies to post-hike snacks or drinks: save them for when you get home.

ON TRAIL AND IN PARKS (트레일이나 공원에 있을 때)

Physical distancing applies in parking lots as well as on trail.

    • Give people space when you meet them on trail. That means in parking lots or other gathering areas, but it also means on the trail. When you see approaching hikers, look for a spot where you can get off trail and maintain 6+ feet of distance. It may feel weird, but these are weird times and its to keep everyone safe.
    • Try not to touch high-touch surfaces like railings (usually found at overlooks). 
    • Avoid sharing water bottles or snacks. 

COMMUNITY-CENTERED CONSIDERATIONS

    • Finally, if youre sick, please stay home and take care of yourself. We hope youll recover quickly, and know that by staying home, youre protecting others and contributing to the fight to flatten the curve.
    • Be extra cautious. We dont want you to get hurt, but also, resources to manage this outbreak are strained. So any risks that might mean you need rescue or health care could further strain those resources.
    • Respect any trail or facility closures. Like we said above, resources are stretched thin right now, and trail and facility closures are in place partially for public safety. 
    • Pack out your trash and any toilet paper. That means taking it home with you. This is always our advice but it will take all of us doing a little extra to keep our trails in good shape right now.

How to get outside during a Stay at Home order

Nature, staying active and spending time outdoors are all critical to our mental and physical health in the best of times, and even more so when a Stay at Home, Stay Healthy order is in place.

But when agencies temporarily close facilities and lands (see sidebar) to help keep our community safe and direct resources at the effort, you may have to find a new way to get your nature fix. Here are a few tips to help you get the outdoor time you need while staying close to home.
