10 Things Day Hikers Need to Pack for Comfort and Fun

Packing light and packing right will make your trip more fun no matter where you are hiking. By brining what you need and nothing more, your pack, and your mood, will be light.

There is a definate strategy for packing for day hikes. The best advice I ever heard is to pack twice. First, gather everything you think you'll need and pack it, with most used items in easy-to-reach spots, and less used in the bottom.

All done? Now unpack the bag, and as you replace each item, ask yourself, "After I have hiked 5 miles, will I still wish I had brought this?" This bit of advice becomes much more meaningful after you have taken your first 10 mile or better hike- the kind where you jettison your belongings rather than keep carrying them on your back. In backpack-packing, weight is your primary concern.

Pick a pack that is both comfortable and light. If you're day hiking, a day pack (bigger than a fanny pack, and better looking, usually with water bottle holders) may be enough, particularly if there are 2 hiker. Note: if you are hiking together, each person needs their own pack. One sure way to hiker discontent is for one person to be stuck carrying the whole load.

Hint: think of exchanging pack contents- if you have the other person's contents in your pack, and they have your contents in their pack, you can each just turn around and easily reach what you need. Otherwise you either have to take off your pack or explain to your companion where to find the item, as in "it's in the bottom outside zipper- no not that bottom, the one above it…"











Food for hiking is an entire subject. Basic guidelines: pack light foods; nothing easily perishable; only things you eat in their entirety- no cores or wrappers other than Ziploc's. And it should be edible at any temperature, since it will stay neither hot nor cold while you hike.

Optional Items depending on the weather:

Hot weather:

Bring a lighter shirt if you are starting out early in the day so you can switch along the way. Leave your modesty at home.

Extra water. You can't have too much water. If it gets to heavy and you are hot, just pour it over your head to cool down and lighten the load. Just keep enough for the way back.

Cold Weather.

Bring a pair of Fleece gloves and a fleece scarf. If it's cold, they will make all the difference and be worth the weight. They are light, can also be used to wipe sweat and cushion a rock that you rest on.
