What to wear? Please wear appropriate clothes for the season and current weather. The ground maybe waterlogged, muddy or have surface puddles. Layers are always a good option! 

What to bring? Please bring your own water bottle if necessary. Likewise, if you normally carry any medication, please remember it. As you need your hands free for the poles, you will need a small rucksack or large pocket to carry any essential items.
