Be sure to wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident. You can never fully predict the weather, especially in the mountains, be sure to bring a layering system no matter what!
What to wear on a day hike?
Trail runners, you can wear sneakers or boots. High socks, because you have to protect yourself from the ticks. Make sure to do a tick check when you get home. I wear shorts, but you can wear pants, leggings, just try and stay away from cotton materials. You don’t want them to absorb water, they can make you colder in a scary situation. A sweat-wicking top as well. I like a long sleeve so I don’t have to reapply sunscreen throughout the day Speaking of the sun, protection for my neck, protection for my face and my head. Then I always have to prepare for the climate to change. I brought Midlayer_01 to keep me warm if I get chilly and a rain jacket should it start to rain. You always have to be prepared.
