Wear comfortable clothes. Cotton holds moisture so tee shirts should be avoided. Wear comfortable walking shoes or boots with socks. Bring a long sleeve shirt if you get cold, it often gets chilly in higher elevations. Hiking poles if you need them.

Hydration:

Suggested: Hands free hydration pack, 32 oz or more, or drawstring bag with water bottle in it. It is good to have your hands free in case you fall. Also pack healthy snacks if you are not sure how hungry you get with exercise.

Optional: Bug spray and sunblock.

We will only hike as fast as the slowest hiker, so do not be intimidated by the length or the terrain.
