Now that you've planned and prepared for your trip, it's time to head out on your adventure in the park! What do you need to double-check before you go? What sort of things should you ask a Ranger when you arrive?
This is your last chance to make sure that everyone is prepared before going on the trip.
When you arrive at the park, locate the Visitor Center or Ranger Station and ask a Park Ranger about:
If a permit is required for your group or your activity, get the permit and pay any fees associated with it and read all regulations printed or stamped on it.
Check in with group members to find out if they are in good health and have the energy to do the planned activity.
Make sure that everyone has enough water and food and that you brought all the necessary equipment for your activity.
Use Plan B if park conditions have changed, a group member’s health or fitness level is not optimal, or equipment is missing.
