Mountaineering Ireland are delighted to announce the Happy Hiking Campaign, an initiative to promote safe walking in the Irish Hills and countryside.
Happy Hiking is aimed at all users of trails and uplands particularly first-time users, novices and tourist. Each time COVID-19 restrictions were eased, there was an above normal influx of people to the uplands. So providing information on how to stay safe when walking in the Irish hills and countryside has never been more important.
The Happy Hiking material is a useful resource for all and includes advice on planning a walk, what to bring with you, getting a weather forecast, who to call in an emergency and so on.
