7. Repair kit and tools
8. Nutrition (extra food)
9. Hydration (extra water)
10. Emergency shelter (tent/plastic tube tent/garbage bag)
Things you need to do before/during your hike :
1. Familiarise yourself with the trail
After you've decided on a trail, get a map of the area and go over reports and data. There are some fantastic online resources. Determine whether the trail is a loop or if you'll have to backtrack or find a second car. Take note of any intersecting trails where you might take a wrong turn. I also like to look for a good lunch spot, such as a lake or a vantage point on a mountain.
2. Check the weather
Check the weather in the days leading up to your hike, and again a few hours before. This will provide you with useful information on how to dress and what to bring. If the weather is predicted to be bad, you will have the opportunity to change your plans rather than being caught off guard on the trail.
3. Tell someone where will you be
If you’re planning to go for a hike, tell someone before going on the trip. It’s easy to get lost or have an accident while on your hike. At least when you tell someone of your whereabouts, if you’re not back after a certain time they’d know where and how to get help.
