  • Dress in layers: The temperature can vary widely throughout the day, so it's a good idea to wear layers that you can add or remove as needed. You may start your hike feeling cold, but as you get moving and the sun comes out, you may warm up quickly. Having layers will allow you to adjust your clothing accordingly.
  • Wear sturdy shoes: If you plan to hike or walk on the trails, make sure to wear sturdy, comfortable shoes with good grip. The terrain can be uneven and rocky in places, so you'll want footwear that can handle it.

  • Wear sunscreen and a hat: At higher elevations, the sun can be stronger, so it's important to protect your skin. Wear sunscreen and a hat to shield your face and neck from the sun's rays.
  • Consider bringing gloves and a beanie: If you're visiting in the cooler months, you may want to bring gloves and a beanie to keep your hands and head warm.
