Weather can change quickly at any elevation, so be prepared for harsh conditions. When hiking at high elevation be prepared for rain, hail, or snow storms at any time of the year.
Temperatures and visibility can drop rapidly.
Most trails are at high elevation and have steep climbs. Be watchful for signs of altitude sickness such as headache and nausea. If you're feeling sick, descend right away.
Sun exposure is also more extreme at high elevation, so be sure to bring hats and sunscreen.
