Your leader will be sending out a Hello Hiker email in advance of the hike with details about the hike and gear.  Highlights:  

Hiking sticks are highly recommended, due to a small stream crossing (4-6 inches deep). A foam sitting pad is also recommended for sitting at the falls for lunch/snack. As the hikes get longer this summer, it's more likely we'll be stopping for a longer time for a full lunch rather than a snack, and it's good to fully rest by sitting down comfortably.
