Wear sunscreen and long pants because the brush is thick and sticky. A light jacket or long-sleeved shirt is also recommended. Although we try to avoid poison oak, sometimes it is encountered. Wear sturdy hiking boots. A walking stick is preferred by some hikers. Bring plenty of water. A hat is also recommended.
The SSPSHP is primitive – this means that there are no toilets, so please plan accordingly.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome as long as they are on leash. Please remember to bring enough water for your four-legged friend? All minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Rain cancels, even light rain. Heat of 95 degrees or more also cancels.
