If you're an avid reader then you know my husband and I loving exploring Tahoe. Before Emerson  came along we hiked nearly every weekend. Although we don't get out as often we still manage to hike with Emerson in tow.

While I might not be an expert, it's safe to say I've hiked enough to know what to pack and what not to pack. I remember the first time Nick and I hiked. Little did I know what I was getting into. I showed up with nothing, but myself. Poor city girl didn't have a clue. Ten years later I'm now a avid  and experienced hiker.



Between my stuff, Emerson and the dog's food, etc. my pack is typically pretty full. However, there are a few items I never leave home without.

MY 5 DAY HIKE ESSENTIALS 

BACKPACK
Kind of a no brainer, but you would be amazed at how many people I pass on the trail without a backpack. A backpack is key because how are you going to carry everything? I recommend purchasing a pack with a hydration system.

WATER + FOOD

Please do not hike without water and lots of if. It's better to have more than you need. Along with water you'll water to pack snacks/lunch. The length of the hike will determine whether you should pack lunch or not, but I always pack a few bars, fruit and trail mix. Again it's better to pack more than you need.


SUNSCREEN
Today's PSA: Never leave home without sunscreen. You'll want to reapply.

LAYERS
You never know when the weather is going to change in the drop of a hat. Or maybe it's a early morning start. Maybe it's super sunny. I personally pack a hat and lightweight jacket.

EYE DROPS
Between pollen, wind, dirt, sun and high elevation the elements might irritate your eyes.  In my pack you'll likely to find I Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ Multi Symptom. Help relieve those irritated eyes.
