What to bring on a hike…

As it’s sometimes a last-minute thought for what to bring out on a hike, we thought we’d help  you prepare for your adventure by supplying an ever-growing list of what to pack. This is purely a guide and will change depending on the terrain and weather conditions you will encounter on the day of your hike.

Our lovely moderator team has helped to compile the suggestions below. If you have something you’d like to add to this, get in touch!

What you will need:

  • Water & snacks
  • Blister plasters 
  • Walking boots
  • Change of clothing/socks 
  • Save everyone’s numbers just in case we separate at any point 
  • Make sure you’ve gone to the loo before you arrive at the car park (no toilets on route until lunchtime)
  • Backpack
  • Warm hiking layers:
    • Gloves and hat 
    • Waterproofs
    • Change of clothing/socks
    • Walking boots
    • Thermal top
  • Portable charger
