At Y Crossing, dip in the sub-22 deg waters (measured at 3pm on a sunny day!), break out your stove, eat and head on back.
- proper hiking boots
- trekking poles here pay dividends on a hike this long - use two to trek alpine style.
- a hat for the exposed hike along the logging track
- at least 3L of drinking water - or stove to purify river water at Y Crossing
- there are leeches in the trail but not in abundance, you would be considered lucky if you are bitten by one.
