The first question would be, are you camping, and going hiking from there? Makes a difference whether you're driving to the campsite, setting up camp and then going the trails for a few hours as opposed to hiking 10-20 miles to the campsite. Done both and it makes a huge difference on equipment and supplies taken along.

There's a link there. If you can't see it there's something wrong with your browser.

In my point of view these are essential things for hiking: Topographic Map, Compass, Flashlight, Sunglasses, Extra Food and Water, First Aid Kit, Matches, Fire Starter, Food Storage Device

Depending where you are and the weather, you might want to take rain gear too.
