Checklist
 
Going offroading for the first time to hidden falls. I was wondering if anyone has some tips on what is necessary to take as far as fluids for the vehicle and anything that might be needed. As well as supplies if there's nothing close by to go stock up.

Haven't been there yet, water for you & riders. Last time I went off-roading for a day all I needed was something to drink for me, tow straps to tug other folks and the winch to get myself up some steep runs. You know your Jeep, if it burns oil, take oil, if it leaks stuff, take extra & have a good time!

The park is not far from town at all. I have only been once but I am thinking its only 10 or 15 mins back into town.

Made my first visit today. I wish I had tried some more complicated trails but I was wheeling alone and still needed to drive back to Houston. Despite that it was really fun finally getting out there. The town was pretty close and was able to get some water.

I know you already went but I always have power steering fluid, gear lube, motor oil, and water that can be used in the radiator if necessary. I've only ever needed the steering fluid since I have a slow leak that gets worse offroad.
Also I now keep brake fluid since I have busted brake lines more than once on or offroad.

Fortunately my lack of planning didnt go bad,

For sure next time I will bring some fluids

Hey Arsonistsavior, what part of town are you in? I'm up in the NW/Cypress area. If you are looking for someone to go with you next time, let me know. I've been wanting to go check that place out, but am too much of a pansy to go by myself, just in case something happens, haha. I'll shoot you a PM with my number.
