When hiking the best laid plans can easily be undone by changeable weather or unforeseen events.
It is important to play safe and take as many extra supplies of food and water as you can comfortably carry.
Clothing choice is also critical, with multiple layers proving the best way to keep both cool and warm on the trail. Base your choices on the length of your trip and possible weather extremes.
