Morning, fans! 🙂
As the leaves start to change and the temperature drops, it’s important to make sure you’re dressed appropriately for your fall hiking adventures. So, I’ve put together a little guide on what to wear while hitting the trails during this transitional season.
First and foremost, layering is key. You want to make sure you’re prepared for the changing temperatures throughout the day, so bring a lightweight, moisture-wicking base layer (think: long sleeve shirt and leggings) that will keep you warm and dry. On top, add a mid-layer for added insulation. A fleece or a puffy jacket works well. And don’t forget a waterproof and breathable outer layer to protect you from the elements.
In terms of footwear, a pair of durable hiking boots or trail shoes with good traction is a must. And don’t forget a pair of socks that will keep your feet warm and dry.
Accessories are also important. Bring a warm hat and gloves, and a scarf or neck gaiter to protect your face and neck from the wind. And don’t forget a pair of sunglasses or clear glasses to protect your eyes from the sun and glare.
And last but not least, don’t forget to bring enough water and snacks to keep you fueled throughout your hike.
So there you have it, fam. Follow these tips and you’ll be sure to have a comfortable and safe hike this fall.
