Before You Go
Before heading out, be prepared with the 10 essentials (map, compass, warm clothing, extra food and water, flashlight or headlamp, matches/firestarters, first aid kit, whistle, rain/wind gear and a pocket knife). The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable even if it is forecasted to be a gorgeous day.
