No one plans on getting lost, but things happen. Hikers of every level need to be prepared for the unexpected. A roll of this tape is an inexpensive life-saver on wilderness trips.
If you intentionally leave the trail, and don’t want to get lost on the way back, use non-adhesive Trail Marking Tape to indicate your path. On your return, remove the tape, and continue your journey.
