O kanogan C ountry W A S H I N G T O N HIKING GUIDE A NOTE ABOUT SAFETY Make the most out of your outdoor adventure by planning ahead and packing well! Make sure to include plenty of water, sunblock, a first aid kit, and food (dried fruits and nuts are lightweight and easy). Take a friend and have a chat! In heavy wildlife areas, it’s best to make noise to give off your location so animals will avoid the area. Be very cautious about poisonous snakes in the summer in hot and dry times. Keep a close eye on children and animals from May-October on these trails. Be extra cautious around tall grasses and rock outcroppings.
