Three Love Hope Strength rockers share their best trail tips.
Mike Peters 
Climb at the pace of your slowest group member. That way everyone stays together to enjoy the day, challenge, views, and music as one. There are no prizes for getting to the top first.
Cy Curnin of The Fixx
Half of the stuff one packs is totally unnecessary. 
Brett Dennen
I love my SteriPen ($50; steripen.com). I obsess over it. I never want to go back to pumping, filtering, boiling, or iodizing water. I just want to wave my magic wand around.
