Helmet. Many mountain hikers overlook the importance of a helmet but it is an essential mountain hiking gear. Even when hiking over a mountain there is always the risk that a broken chunk of mountainous terrain might fall right on top of you and your helmet will protect your head from damage.
You realize how long California is when you hike the whole way it took three months and one week to reach Oregon but I never got tired of the continually changing and always beautiful scenery. From Mt. Shasta on we had numerous forest fires causing hazy skies beautiful sunsets and closed trails and detours. For the last month we weren‘t sure we would be able to finish the trail at Manning Park. We did have to skip a section in Oregon due to fires but the final section before the Canadian border reopened just before we got there. Unlike some just ahead of us we were able to finish at the official terminating point and get our pictures at the border monument. That is the through-hiker‘s "summit" moment similar to when a mountaineer reaches the top of the mountain.
You may be interested in traveling further away from home for a holiday and need to research hiking parks and trails. The internet is useful for finding the information you need and for other resources like places to stay whilst you are away. Once you have arrived at your destination the local tourist office will have plenty of information available and usually have the most up-to-date information. Sometimes hiking trails or parks have to close for one reason or another so you can get recommendations for other places to hike. You can always the best trails that way. Local residents at your destination will have a good knowledge of the area so you may want to think about asking them some questions about the local trails and the ones that are highly recommended.
