Having the right hiking gear and accessories are essential to a safe and comfortable climb. It’s time to put away your parka and store the rest of your warm winter gear. Pull out your Pocket T’s, and treat yourself to a new pair of sunglasses and a lightweight backpack.
The best way to stay comfortable is to have your own clothing layering system. Wear a base layer with comfortable clothing over the top. This way, you can adjust your clothing easily to any changes in temperature. Make sure you check the weather forecasts before you head out, and always plan for the worst so you can be prepared for whatever Mother Nature may throw your way.
Don’t forget your guidebook and your trail map as you embark on new and exciting hiking trails.
