What to bring

When hiking with us for a few hours, the following items are the most needed: 

  • Water - 1 liter per hour of hiking is recommended
  • A healthy snack (granola bar, trail mix, etc.)
  • Sun protection i.e. hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm
  • Light jacket for wind protection and warmth even during the summer months since we do high altitude hiking
  • First Aid Kit:  Small bag with a few supplies i.e. bandaids, etc.
  • Cell phone
  • Flashlight (is this feature on your cell phone)
  • Rain poncho & Wind protection
  • My cell phone number in your phone.  801-278-5313
  • Cell phone service may be spotty in the canyons
