Base Packing List: Foraging In Spring

Foraging in Spring - Lake Tahoe

Many of the trails meander through blossoming foliage and colossal forests, teaming with a splendid array of animal life, eventually find their way to these tempests. To stand at the base of these waterfalls and gaze heavenward is a breathtaking experience.

To get the most out of spring time exploration we recommend packing for cold, but planning for bright clear skies and lots of exercise!


Hiking Gear

  • Hiking or walking boots! Never know where the adventure will take you, so having water resistant, weatherproof, well supported hiking boots is a plus!
  • Durable jackets and snow clothing with a few layers underneath (Check out REI for more ideas). Even though its spring, there may still be some snow patches throughout your adventure.
  • Backpack for storing any shedded apparel layers (If your phone/gps isnt waterproof bring a case or bag that is).

Food and Water

Every adventurer has a different style but we prefer to go for protein, energy and hydration first! Pack plenty of water or if you can, a filtered water bottle is perfect for staying light.


Camera (Phone works too)

Capture each moment and tag us on your Instagram using #TahoeAndPlay! we love seeing our adventurers in their wild element.
