What should you take when you visit?

Back Up

Here is the list that you should consider on taking.

  • Plenty of water, half a gallon in winter and a gallon in summer is recommendable.  If you run out of water you can drink the water that comes out of the copper pipe that comes out of the rock above the crab cooker pool.
  • Food snacks such as fruit, nuts, trail mix, dried fruit, snack bars, chocolate, etc.  Some people heat cans of chili beans or soup in the crab cooker.
  • Sunscreen lotion, very important during spring and summer
  • Cap or hat for sun protection especially in summer
  • Warm clothes.  Dress in layers as it will get fresh in the evenings during spring and autumn, and can be very cold in winter.
  • Comfortable walking or hiking shoes
  • $5.00 per person ($10.00 overnight) if you plan on parking at the Bowen Ranch. Try and have the exact change as you may need to use the envelope and slot provided if there is no one at the door.
  • Towel
  • Water Shoes to protect your feet from the hot rocks or sand.
  • Toilet paper
  • Small shovel to use when you go behind a bush
  • Trash bags to carry out your own trash, including used toilet paper
  • Flashlight with new or spare batteries, in case you are caught by dark
  • Emergency blanket to sit on or for warmth in winter
  • Walking stick for hiking if you like
  • A whistle in case you get lost
  • A first aid kit or simple items like Band-Aids, aspirins, etc.
  • A change of clothes to leave in your vehicle, so that you have something to change into if you want at the end of your hike
