GEAR:scramble stuff,good boots,lots of water,food(snacks and lunch)sunscreen,layers,poles,bear spary(is a good idea)your own first aid kit,oh and can't forget your back packs"hehe" also any other things you might need while out doors oh and bug spray for the tics are out and tickin along so be safer pack bug spray and helmet if you prefer for this trip,i am thinking that micro spikes won't be needed for i am not packing mine.
