I leave hiking plans with my wife everytime I go out, even if its just a simple text telling her the trail name, departure point, and expected return time. I do this even for the short trails around my area that I can do in an hour or less. For me its common courtesy and a bit of insurance for just in case. Never know when you might snap an ankle somewhere that people don't frequent. Or worse with hunting season open, encounter an unsafe hunter in woods and have the unthinkable occur.
