To complete this day hike, I highly recommend bringing flashlight or headlamp, electrolytes, trail snacks, at least 2 L of water, bug spray, and your 10 essentials. Carpooling encouraged! Also, I’m bringing a jet boil to make breakfast and coffee at the top! If you want to do the same, I encourage this...breakfast with a view!
