What you’ll need
Whether you’re going for a short stroll or off on a big hike, it’s a good idea to take some essentials with you. We suggest additional clothes to keep you warm and dry if the weather turns nasty, a hat and sunscreen to help stop the sunburn, and a bottle of water plus something to eat in case you need them.
