We’ve been hiking every week, since I’ve joined the #52hikechallenge, so I’ve started to have hiking essentials to bring with me, to make sure I’m prepared. Today I’m sharing my Hiking Essentials.
Plan The Hike
Look on the AllTrails app or ask in a local group, so you know how long what to expect during the hike.
We personally do hikes 5 miles or shorter, so that reduces the need of preparation and what to bring on those hikes.
Bring a Backpack
I hate carrying things and with my back injury, I carry a waist pocket bag or small backpack.
My backpack is super light and has a ton of pockets.
Food & Water
I usually don’t eat, nor drink during those short trails, to avoid the need of a bathroom, but I always bring a small bottle of water and a snack bar.
I love the elevation keto bars! They are small and only have 3g of carbs, if you are on healthy lifestyle!
Nuts, cheese stick, crackers are also great snacks to bring on the trail.
Love bringing small packages of nuts with me as well!
Just remember to keep the bags inside your pocket or bag, no trash left behind.
Protect Your Skin
I apply sunblock at home and I bring it with me, because you never know.
This is my favorite because it also gives you the anti-aging element:
I also apply lipgloss or lip balm.
No need to add a ton of makeup to go hiking. For me, the products are more for protection.
Hiking Must Bring Items
All pocket size, of course!
No need to explain, so many different needs for tissues, right?
Covid time means always have it with me!
I don’t hike with a mask, but I always have it with me.
Sometimes the hike makes me too hot, so I keep my gloves in my backpack for when I need them.
I always wear a hat, winter, spring, summer or fall!
You never know what’s going to happen, so it’s always a good idea to bring a small flashlight.
Pictures, videos, got lost?
To use apps, find your way out, call somebody , you’ll need a cellphone, so having an extra battery or wireless charger is always a good idea.
Can’t wait to hear what you think!
