Don’t use your face to walk through spider webs. Try these tips instead.

You’re on a hiking trail early in the morning, the sun is shining and all is calm… until you encounter a trap of a creepy-crawly enemy.

Spiders have been “trapping” tourists since, well, forever. Fortunately, there are several ways you can avoid this problem.

According to the National Park Service, you may not be able to avoid the net, but you can get other things or other people to clear the way.

  • Don’t use your face – use a cane. If you see a spider web, use the stick to remove it from your path before walking through it.

  • Invite a tall person to join you on your hike and have them walk in front of you. Although after a few networking dates, you may need to offer words of encouragement or compliments and act surprised.

    • You can also say something like, “Wow, that never happens!” or “I’m sure that’s the only one we’ll see.”

  • Be lazy – sleep. Go on a hike after the early risers so they can tackle the cobwebs. Think smarter, not harder.

  • Dance! Make the most of the little dance you can do when passing through a net and trying to remove it. Just don’t scare anyone.

The NPS wants to remind hikers that spiders can and will spin or repair their web in about 30 to 60 minutes. So keep that in mind in case you need to go back.

Also, be sure to get the right gear and clothing. It’s hot outside. Happy trails!
