Shawn Mendes is laughing off a literal hiking trip.

On Friday, the 23-year-old singer uploaded a post to Instagram where he can be seen taking part in a hike at Runyon Canyon in Los Angeles while shirtless.

In one photograph, Mendes poses on the trail with the cityscape pictured behind him. In a subsequent video, the "In My Blood" singer is seen flexing his muscles before he slips and tumbles down the dirt path.

"I guess that's what I get," Mendes captioned the post, poking fun at the mishap.

In the comments section, many of the musician's fans reacted to the clip, playfully teasing Mendes for the incident.

"King of falling after thirst trapping," wrote one fan as another added, "It's not Shawn Mendes if he's not falling."

Mendes' latest Instagram antics come about after the star teased new music in a different post earlier in the week, which left fans speculating that a new album is on the way.

In a short, 12-second clip shared on the social media platform Tuesday, Mendes can be seen sitting in a car listening and nodding to a new, upbeat song while on a FaceTime call. Another shot shows the "If I Can't Have You" crooner in the studio working on a track as he plays the guitar.
