Planning Your Sunset Hike
Sunset hikes are so rewarding but they do require additional planning and gear. After a long day, you’ll be hiking down in the dark.
At the very least, you‘ll need a headlamp — with extra batteries, just in case. Your phone’s tiny light definitely will not cut it. And a handheld flashlight is a terrible idea because you’ll want both hands free at all times. Get a headlamp.
Make sure to leave your hike plan and emergency numbers with somebody reliable.
