Essential Gear

The gear required for a hike depends on where you are going. We’ve broken hikes into three categories, and provide an essential gear list for each.

Gear Lists

  • In-town Hiking
    So you’re just going to hike a few miles through the local city park? There are still some essential items.
  • Trail and Backcountry Hiking
    You’ve picked up a copy of 100 Hikes in Utah, and found one you like. Or maybe you’re really roughing it! This list contains items that are all “must haves” if you are out in the wilderness.
