Clothing that wicks moisture from the skin are recommended. Cotton clothing for exercise and hiking should be avoided unless you bring several to change into in the same day. Consult with your local area hiking outfitter.
At least 3 complete sets of hiking clothes and a water resistant hiking jacket.
Comfortable clothing for fitness and yoga classes.
A light-to-medium fleece-type pullover or jacket.
Pair of broken-in workout/training shoes. (At least 1 month of use).
Pair of hiking shoes or trail shoes fitted by a professional hiking store. If you already have shoes, you may want to have them checked by a professional prior to your arrival.
3 pair of proper hiking socks and liners. We do not recommend cotton socks, as they cause blisters. Please ask a professional hiking store what they recommend for 10 miles of daily mountain hiking, especially if you are not accustomed to hiking.
A sun hat.
Sunglasses (two pair just in case).
Sunblock (we recommend at least SPF 30).
Active movement bathing suit (you can bring a bikini too, but make sure to bring at least one bathing suit you can be active in).
Bug spray (ideally using natural repellants on the skin rather than DEET).
Hydration system with hip belt such as a Camelbak that will comfortably hold at least 100 oz. of water, PLUS room for other personal items (toiletries, sunblock, windbreaker, etc.). Please get properly fitted at the store before purchasing.
We recommend casual clothing that allows you to be comfortable in the evenings, including flip flops and Uggs (depending on the weather).
