Take plenty of water and food, like fruit, energy bars, lunch etc. Take a small first aid kit with bandaids, bandages, insect repellent, pain relief tablets, sun cream, a sun hat or beanie, sunglasses etc. Wear appropriate clothing, short or long pants, shirt and a jumper if required.

Wear comfortable hiking boots or runners for a short hike and wear thick socks to cushion your feet as you walk and climb. Remember it can rain when you don’t expect it at least take a disposable poncho if you don’t want to carry waterproofs.

If you are going for more than a day you will need a lot more equipment use the checklist below as a guide.
