PRACTICAL ADVICE

We can enhance our physical ability:

-Through training and experience

-By pacing ourselves during the hike (walk at a slow and steady rate) especially at the beginning of the route

-Coordinate breathing rate with walking

-Avoid prolonged stops. Make sure your whole foot can rest solidly on the ground, keep your feet resting perpendicular to the ground and take short but firm steps when climbing 

-The recommended speed is between 3 or 4 kilometres per hour for a flat path, and we need to reduce the speed and increase the effort level for an uphill path

-It is very important to ration your drinks. Drink water or isotonic drinks frequently, approximately, every half and hour

-Proper nutrition, adapted to the physical effort, without excess 

THE TRAIL. IN TOUCH WITH NATURE

-Do not dispose of litter or garbage on the land. Use the waste collection system

-Do not light a fire. Use ready-to-eat meals.

-Close the doors, fences and gateways that you may find on your way to prevent cattle from wandering out 

-Follow the existing trail, taking shortcuts leads to the deterioration of the route and the original path can be lost 

-Do not disturb the peace and quiet of the countryside by making excessive noise. Try to avoid the use of cars and vehicles on the path

-If you have a dog, walk it with an attached leash to prevent it from bothering the cattle or any other animals 

-We need to take care of our rivers or fountains

-Do not tear out the limbs or leaves of the trees, it can cause damage to the nature

-Do not camp in unauthorized areas
