Other Gear. While this was the most essential mountain hiking gear that you might possibly need depending on your preference and style there are several other hiking gear you can use too. Some of this gear includes cams chalk bags for the winter and webbing. If you ever decide to go for mountain hiking whether you plan to by yourself or with a hiking partner never leave without the mentioned essential mountain hiking gear.
Moreover it would be convenient if you bring a good assortment of drinks food and even snacks on your hiking adventure. Water is still the best drink to bring along including small bags of snacks like pretzels trail mix and other kinds of snacks that come in small packs or are easy to carry on your hiking bag. But if you plan to spend a night or two on your hike and camping bringing some real food will be a good idea. Make some sandwiches or bring some pieces of fruits with you.
Apart from your hiking boots there are other forms of equipment needed for you hike. If you plan on embarking on a day hike you will need hiking socks water purifying tablets (if you are not carrying your own water) a back pack walking stick traction devices rescue beacons signaling gear Avalanche probes (if you will be on snow covered hilly terrain) jackets binoculars first aid kit a compass sunscreen and food. For an overnight hike you will require a tent sleeping bag camp stoves rain gear matches a Swiss army knife and a flashlight. Get a map of the route you plan on taking. If you plan to hike alone or with one another person notify your family (or a ranger if you are hiking through a park) on the place where you will be and the time you expect to return. That way someone can come looking for you if you are in trouble or just simply lost.
Just after we started the High Sierra we met Swiss Miss and Pang. I hiked together with them the rest of the way to Canada. Along the way I spend varying amounts of time with other hikers as well. A group of 12 of us left Yosemite together - The Dirty Dozen! Half of us were from the U.S. and half were from other countries so it became a very international experience. Each of us had strengths and weakness and we learned to work together as a team and to help and depend on each other. My greatest fear before starting the hike was crossing the rapid flowing icy cold rivers. They turned out to not be as terrible as I had expected. We had a few close calls and some struggles but the teamwork was amazing and we did it together.
