What to bring:
- We have sheets and towels, but if you want to avoid laundry, you can bring a sleeping bag.
- Warm jacket: even when it’s 95 in NYC, it can be cold at night in the mountains.
- Bathing suit
- Bug spray: we have black flies at least through June and mosquitoes all summer. Ticks are also a possibility.
- Rain jacket
- Good hiking shoes: you might be able to get away with running shoes, but be aware that trails can be rocky, muddy, slippery, and possibly snowy or icy, even in July
