Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Camping Canopy is a hiking and backpacking website that offers a treasure trove of resources for trail adventurers, outdoor lovers, and backpacking beginners. Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions we receive.

For a hiking trip, you should pack the ten essentials: navigation tools, sun protection, insulation (extra clothing), illumination (headlamp/flashlight), first-aid supplies, fire-starting tools, repair kit and tools, nutrition (extra food), hydration (extra water), and emergency shelter.

When choosing a backpack, consider the duration of your trip, the volume of gear you need to carry, the fit (torso length and hip size), and features like ventilation, pockets, and hydration compatibility.

To stay safe, always plan your route and inform someone about your itinerary, check the weather forecast, stay on marked trails, be aware of wildlife, carry a map and compass or GPS device, and have a basic knowledge of first aid.

Practice Leave No Trace principles, which include planning ahead and preparing, traveling and camping on durable surfaces, disposing of waste properly, leaving what you find, minimizing campfire impacts, respecting wildlife, and being considerate of other visitors.
