4 Family Hiking Essentials You Need to Hit the Trails

Looking for something to do with the family to get them off of their screens these days? Hiking just might be the perfect family outing! If the weather is nice in your part of the country, pack up a few things and take a family hike on a nearby trail.

If it’s your first time hiking, pick an easy to follow the trail that isn’t that difficult. Especially if you have small kids in tow. But if you are a bit more seasoned and have a family that’s ready for the challenge, map out a trail you all can do together.

Here are a few hiking essentials you might find handy in addition to your regular hiking products:

Having a neck fan for everyone can be a great way to keep cool. These O2COOL fans are battery operated and adjustable to fit kids and adults! They come in multiple colors to fit everyone’s personality. The fan sits on the top of the device so that the air is blowing up into your face. On a hot day, this feels great!

Although we are keeping away from screen time, having an extra charger on hand for emergencies is a great idea! Westinghouse is one of my favorite buys for electronics. This mobile charger is slim and compact which makes it the perfect size to travel with. It has two USB outlets to charge multiple devices and it also has a battery level indicator to let you know how much charge you have left.
