Flagstaff, AZ: We recently participated in the Grand Canyon Hiking Guides Seminar where one of the Leave No Trace issues that came up was proper headlamp etiquette. Rangers and guides both shared stories of being blinded by visitors completely unaware of the power of their headlamps, and asked us to help raise awareness around this issue.
Don’t get us wrong, a headlamp is an essential part of every adventure kit! Lights provide an awesome alternative to campfires and make cooking, cleaning, playing games and late night bathroom runs easier and safer. However, those lumens can have a big impact on other visitors! Step up your Leave No Trace game and Be Considerate of Other Visitors by following our favorite tips and tricks for headlamp etiquette.
Have Fun. Be Safe. Leave No Trace.
