Winter Hiking near Hot Springs NC

Although you may not plan to be out long on a day hike, it is always cooler at higher elevations and the weather can change drastically in just a few hours. You should dress in layers of non-cotton, moisture wicking clothing and always pack a rain proof outer layer. Wear comfortable socks and hiking shoes or boots. You may want to bring a hiking pole. In a lightweight pack carry some supplies: a map/compass (know how to use them), first aid kit/medications, sunscreen, a pocketknife, a lighter, a whistle, a flashlight, extra socks, a jacket, safety/emergency blanket, 2-3 quarts of water per person per day, and snacks (nuts or trail mix, protein bars, beef jerky). Remember to LEAVE NO TRACE! Carry everything out that you brought in and bury human waste.
