Bring a small backpack with lunch, snacks, and water.

Be prepared by watching the weather forecast and dressing accordingly.  There will be two or three narrow stream crossings.  Footwear should keep feet dry and have good, sturdy soles with reliable traction for slick rocks and mud.

To avoid trampling of plants, please leave dogs at home.
