Well, first of all you need good shoes and good socks. Sturdy shoes that are comfortable, have good traction, waterproof, and not hiking shoes. I would recommend a lighter weight version of a trail shoe or a sturdy running shoe out of lightness and comfort, unless you have ankle problems - then you go with a high-top boot. I would recommend synthetic fiber clothes that take moisture away from your body and keep you not just dry, but warm as well. Dress in layers that heat you up. You can strip down layers. A good hat, sunglasses, sun block, plenty of water and food - snacks that provide quick energy such as energy bars. You want quick, edible snacks on the trail.
