If you read other day-hike checklists online, you might end up bringing a twenty-pound backpack for a two-hour walk at a nature trail. Totally overkill.
My checklist is a short, realistic list of things you are more likely to need on a leisurely day hike (up to four hours long) in good weather close to civilization. We’re not talking a hike in back country of Yosemite here. More like a causal hike at a nature trail or local mountains or hills.
