What to Pack for a Day Hike

I love to get an early start in the morning when I am planning an all day hike up and down a mountain. The air is cooler in the morning and there are less people on the trail. Since I plan to be out for at least 4 hours, maybe even 8 hours if I am feeling really ambitious, I need more than just water in my day pack.

I made this widget - it's a list of day hike essentials. Check it out.

Fit's Tips: I always pack my lunch and snacks in a plastic grocery bag and when I'm done, I use the bag for my trash and any I find on the trail.

National Geographic had an article the other day that warned some Nalgene and similar bottles can contain #3 plastic (the one most likely to leach into your water). So make sure you check the recycling symbol on the bottom of your re-usable water bottles.

Great! I will keep all this in mind when I go for my hike later in July.
