hiking essentials to bring for adventure travel

When i travel, wether its adventure travel or for work, i’m always seeking out hiking (or trail running trails) in the cities/towns where i am staying. So i have a list of essentials that i always bring with me for hiking just in case.  Im wondering what other people bring w them that is a hiking must-have (when you can’t pack everything plus the kitchen sink 😉 Be well, annie

REI travel pants with the nerdy zip off pant legs to make shorts.  Quick drying too if you wash them in the sink.

Hike goo cream for your feet, buff for multiple purposes (head band, over mouth and chin if dusty or cold, etc.) ibuprofin (just in case)!

Re: hiking essentials to bring for adventure travel

This isn't such a big deal now - in the spring. But come fall or winter, when it gets dark so early in the northern latitudes where I live, I try to always pack a lightweight mesh construction vest with the big reflective strips. Mine cost around $10 and has a zip front (the vecro gets irritating over time). It's easy to wear and makes me so much more visible - giving me a lot of protection from from cars. Not so necessarily if I'm on a dedicated trail, but sooner or later I'm near cars, and it's like my personal bullet-proof vest!

Re: hiking essentials to bring for adventure travel

I try to take as many of the Ten Essentials as possible whenever I head into the outdoors, even near population centers.  I always think of those people who met dissaster after thinking they were just going for a short walk.  If I don't bring them all, I try to pay more attention to my situation and assess if I might be heading into a newspaper headline (lost hiker found...).
