Hiking poles are a good idea in any season, especially if the terrain is rocky or slippery. Wearing appropriate clothing and footwear prevents injuries and shows consideration for a safe and positive group hiking experience.
    4. Always carry I.D. and your health card.
    5. Bring sufficient water and snacks (or lunch if indicated).
    6. For spring and summer hikes bring sunscreen and insect repellent.
