To ensure you have a safe and enjoyable hike, you'll want to make sure you're properly kitted and prepared.
Downtown 2nd Avenue is lined with shops providing any kit you'll need before venturing out into the wild. The staff are experienced, knowledgable, and passionate about the outdoors, and will ensure you'll have everything you need.
Be sure to know where you are going, and where the trail leads. The Visitors Centres (off Highway 3, and on 2nd Avenue), as well as some shops will have free summer trail maps. Alternatively, help the environment and download the digital copy to your smart devices.
