Helmets are mandatory.
If you are new to mountain bike riding I recommend that you invest in some knee pads and elbow pads(along with your Helmet, Eye protection glasses, and Gloves). Bring at least 1 liter of water per hour riding. Most people bring snacks, and it wise to carry at least 1 spare tire tube.
