I always use one or two hiking staffs, trekking poles, or, in German "ein Spazierstock." May two of them.
I also wear sturdy shoes or boots.
As Arno noted, watch those altitude changes, and remember that you may be at high enough altitude to find that you need to catch your breath if you hurry or climb to quickly.
Please look at the link I gave you for trail signs, and compare with the map. If the trail is "red" (that is a "mountain hiking trail, ein Bergwanderweg, you definitely should use a staff and boots or sturdy shoes with lugged soles.
