Local plant life (what poisonous plants may you come in contact with, learn what they look like, and share that with fellow hikers), let someone else know (tell someone where you are going, with who, and when you might be back so “just in case” someone will realize you are missing) if the trail is at a state park, check-in with the local ranger.
