Things to Consider Before Taking Part

Adventure activities entail a certain level of risk. If you're not comfortable with the level of risk involved, then you may want to refrain from participating in these activities. For more information about safety precautions for adventure activities visit Here are some things to consider before taking part in an adventure activity: 

  • Know what you're getting yourself into. Do your research and be prepared for the potential risks. 

  • Form a safe group. Adventure activities are more fun when everyone is safe and comfortable. Bring along someone who is familiar with the area and can help keep you safe. 

  • Be aware of your surroundings. Pay attention to your surroundings at all times and be mindful of possible dangers. 

  • Take appropriate precautions. If you feel that something is wrong, take appropriate precautions (e.g., tell someone about your plan, get out of the area). 

  • Be prepared to bail if necessary. If things don't go as planned, be prepared to bail quickly and safely.

  • Take appropriate precautions for flash floods. Flooding can occur anywhere, and water levels generally rise rapidly when it rains. Be prepared to take appropriate precautions when traveling in any flood-prone areas. 

  • Watch out for poison oak, thorns, and other dangers. Poison oak is common on the coast in California, especially in the early spring months; be aware of the possibility that poison oak could be present at any time of year.

  • Be sure to drink enough water or stay hydrated. You should drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after your adventure activity to prevent dehydration (especially if it's hot). -Leave a detailed itinerary with someone who will be able to contact you if necessary.
