What You Need for Your Dayhike

Time spent outside is best when we’re well-equipped. Here are some basic tips.

  • Be prepared for weather, stay alert, plan ahead and have a trail map so you know what to expect.
  • Inform others where you will be and what time you plan to be back. Set a deadline to turn around and head back well before sundown.
  • Plan on not having cell phone reception.
  • Wear proper footwear and clothing.
  • Take a compass and a flashlight.
  • Bring water and well-sealed trail snacks.

  • Apply natural, reliable sunscreen (such as Think Sport)
  • Plastic-free water bottles.
  • Use DEET-free insect and tick repellant (For an easy home recipe, add 15 drops of geranium and eucalyptus essential oils to a two-ounce spray bottle filled with distilled water. Shake well before each use.)
  • Consider a natural first-aid kit. (DIY guidelines for creating alternative kits are found at Tinyurl.com/NaturalRemediesTravelKit and Tinyurl.com/AnHerbalFirstAidKit.
