I would recommend comfortable shoes, all weather gear, sweat shirt for night time (up in the mountains at night can be somewhat cool). Please take bug spray. Do not bring blow dryers or curling irons unless they are battery operated.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you are not used to hiking up hill, muscle rubs are a good choice.
visit trout run. Also, travel up the mountain to enjoy the panoramic view of Ralston from the top at the 'band shell' location
Fondest memory: What I miss the most is the clear dry air up in the mountains. The deer come so close to any cabin and the trout in the creeks are a joy to watch.
