What to Bring

You’ll want to prepare for time outdoors, so pack not only for the forecast but for the unexpected. Keeping dry and warm is vital to your comfort – be prepared for cold or rainy days as well as sunny and refreshing time in the woods or along the river. It is better to have an extra pair of dry socks and shoes and not need them, than to need them and not have them.
