What to Bring?

You will need a change of clothes, toiletries and a towel as well as closed-toed shoes that you don’t mind getting wet, Sunscreen, hat, drinking water, and a snack.  You also should bring clothes and shoes that you can hike around in, bug repellant and a hat. Remember to bring a jacket or sweater as once it gets dark the temperature will drop. In addition, you will need camping equipment including frame-packs, sleeping bag and mat which are available for check-out from Reinhardt Central, but they are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Do not check out tents from Reinhardt Central as tents will not be needed.
