What to Pack for a Summer Stay at Zennest

Summer Stay at Zennest

There are so many activities around Zennest, from hiking, and mountain biking, to fishing and gazing at the stars. We’ve compiled a list of what to pack depending on your vacation plans while staying at Zennest. 


If you plan on taking a hike you will want a good pair of hiking boots to help you navigate the wet and dry trails with ease and enable you to explore further than you maybe would have. A large water jug or hydration system, depending upon your hike, is a must to keep you hydrated. Due to the desert temperatures fluctuating 30 degrees in one day, make sure that you pack warm and cold clothing layers, including a winter hat. It’s good to have a map, whether you pick one up at the entrance station or you plan ahead and grab one. Other things to pack would be a headlamp, tablecloth, light snacks, bug spray, small plastic bags, sunhat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a small first aid kit. Don’t forget that backpack to put all those things in!

Mountain Biking

Pack those bags for an unforgettable mountain biking excursion and bring along a well-maintained bike, helmet, padded cycling gloves, your typical cycling clothes, eye protection, elbow, knee, and shin pads (optional), drinking bottle or hydration pack, snacks, an extra warm layer, a waterproof top, a waterproof notebook and pencil, personal medication, sunscreen, first aid kit, a spare inner tube, spare pair of brake pads/blocks, and a spare mech hanger. Don’t forget your maps, compass and a GPS.


Duck Creek Village is a popular place for fishing with Aspen Mirror Lake and Duck Creek pond within walking distance from Duck Creek Village. You will want to make sure you bring a fishing pole, tackle box and all the accessories, rain jacket, tablecloth, water jug, warm and cold clothing layers, bug spray, sunscreen, and don’t forget that bait! 

After a long day out fishing, hiking, or mountain biking, you’ll want to make sure to bring your bathing suit to enjoy and relax in our hot tub!
