For day long hikes (woodsy area, streams, water falls, etc.), what is a good lens to take, if taking nature shots, but not animal shots?

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

There are several hiking oriented camera bags you can buy that will allow you to take a camera with lens attached, an extra lens and all your food/water jacket etc.

i pretty much do the same - either a two lens combo of 10-22 and 24-105 or just the 24-105.

i do sometimes take out only the 100 macro - but that is when I hike on a "macro-hunt"

As much as I love my Canon(s), when backpacking I carry a Nex system, usually a Nex-6 with one lens on the body and 2 in the pouch.

Are you taking a tripod? Are you taking ND filters?

Tripod yes (a short and light one), filters no (yet).

Ther are a few f2.8 lens recommendations. Unless the focal range is the main reason for the recommendation, in what situations would I need a fast lens in outdoors? Won't I be needing DOF in nature shots? Just trying to learn.

5D3, 24-105L and maybe 17-40L -- assuming no wildlife. Also my tripod, CPL and ND filters.

If I want to travel light, just the 5D3 + 24-105L.

Your 7D + 15-85 will be really good. I use the same lens with a 60D. However, I always manage to find a spot for my 10-22 as well. Both are great for walk arounds.

5d II plus Zeiss 35 f/2. If I feel like carrying more I'll take a 17-40L or 135L. I don't take the 24-105 because I want max IQ even if it means no zoom.

If I am not photographing birds, I take my 40mm f/2.8 STM pancake that I purchased for $145 after rebate. It is extraordinarily lightweight and unobtrusive from a length standpoint, amazingly sharp for such an inexpensive lens, and a throwaway, if damaged in a knock or fall situation.
