What to Pack for a Hiking Trip
I wanted to share my best tips for what to pack for a hiking trip. Lately, we have been on a hiking kick y’all! I love this time of year; it is just the perfect hiking weather! So bring on hiking season! We recently went hiking at 4 different parks while in Nevada, Arizona, and Utah a couple weeks ago. You can read more about those spots here. And then this weekend for Labor Day, we did some hiking in Arkansas with the girls. We had so much fun, and the girls did amazingly! We were so proud of them. They were adventurous and brave and did such a good job…and without any complaining along the way, woohoo!
And later this week, I’m headed to California and plan to do some hiking while I’m there too. I will say what you pack while hiking with friends is a little different than what you pack while hiking with kids, but today I wanted to share some of my favorite brands for hiking clothing and gear. These are some of the go-to pieces I reach for come fall. And if anyone is interested, I’ll do a post on hiking with kids soon and share some great pieces to pack and some great tips for keeping the kids hydrated and motivated and having fun.
We absolutely love going in the fall and spring, and plan to start adding it in on even more trips now that we know the girls can do it and will have a blast! I’m thinking of Colorado for Fall Break and the Smoky Mountains for Spring Break next year. Are you a big fan of hiking? Do you hike with your kids? Let me know in the comments below!
