"Daypack essentials" Baxter State Park Packing List Tip by Gilfeather
Baxter State Park What to Pack: 2 reviews and 2 photos
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: .
-Sturdy Footwear: Hiking boots...sneakers probably aren't going to be an adequate choice. Most trails are rock covered and footing can be difficult at times.
-Wool/Pile shirt and or sweater, hat, extra socks and raingear.
It can get blustery at the top.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: .
-Band-Aids, Ace Bandages, mole skins.
Likelihood of Blister= High
Photo Equipment: .
-Lightweight digital would be nice. Larger formats are difficult to hump.
-Water...err... Did I mention water? Yeah...Water.
At Least 2 quarts when climbing any of the mountains. Consider looking into "Camelbaks".
-Flashlight: "I know you plan to be back in camp before it gets dark but you may still be dragging your *** when the light is fading."
-Snacks: High Energy Bars, candy, nuts, dried fruit, rack of lamb. (<---Just testing to see if you are still with me.)
-Map/Guide Book: Know your route; plan for alternatives if the weather gets nasty.
-Other Stuff to Consider Bringing: Compass, lighter, emergency blanket (foil), whistle, knife, voluptuous traveling companion.
