Your hiking conditions will tell you exactly what gear to take on your hike.

DAY HIKE GEAR CHECKLIST — If you’re just going out for the day you may not need much, but you’ll still want a few things in case the weather turns bad or something unexpected happens.

If you’re not going to be far from your car you can leave some of the gear there. Try to anticipate what things you may encounter as you’re putting your gear together.
