What To Bring

  • Don’t worry about what type of bag to pack your clothing in, as we will be repacking your clothes in our canoe packs.
  • Rain Gear - A jacket with hood and separate pants work best.
  • Foot Wear - The trip requires a solid running shoe with rubber soles. A second pair of sandals/shoes is necessary for evening. Count on the trail shoes getting very wet and muddy during the day.
  • Warm Clothes - Remember to bring a wind proof shell / jacket, warm sweater (wool or fleece), warm wool socks, long pants, and long sleeved shirt. Synthetic long underwear like polypropylene, a hat/toque and gloves are also a good idea for spring and fall trips.
  • Sun Protection - Dehydration and sunburn can wreak havoc on your energy so bring along a water bottle, sun hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and shorts.
  • Bug Dope - While spring (May 20 to July 10) is bug season, bogs and portages can be buggy in August! Bring along insect repellent. Anything with Deet level over 25% will be effective.
  • Other Important Items - Bathing suit (for a swim), towel, T-shirt(s), bandanna, flashlight, camera with extra batteries, daypack (to hold rain gear, water bottle during hikes and canoeing.)
