Vegan Gear for Fall Hikes

Depending on where you live, fall could mean a lot of different things.

Here in the Adirondacks, it means cooler weather, fewer insects, beautiful foliage, shorter days, and the potential to encounter snow and ice. (And that winter is coming… my absolute favorite hiking season.)

I recently hiked Buck Mountain, on Lake George with some friends. It’s a short 5 mile round trip. No snow on this hike, but we did encounter a small amount of ice on some of the shadier rocky parts. Nothing that microspikes were necessary for. We just took our time to avoid the ice.

The North Face Pullover Fleece
Trail Book
Hydroflask with water

Snacks: Bagel with Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese, Larabars, Clif Bars & Cocomels (I’m a hungry hiker and like to share with my hiking partners)

I do wish I had brought some gloves because my hands got a little chilly, but putting them in my jacket pockets did the trick.
