If you’ve ever wanted to clean the dishes, wipe your brow or finish up a splint with your trail map, you’re in luck. And if you’ve ever wished that the bandana that was keeping the hair out of your eyes could help identify trees, stars and hiking safety tips, you, my friend, have found your match. Meet the Trail Hankie.
While most of their hiking, river and lake maps are from places in the south and midwest that I’ve never visited, it doesn’t matter much. Trail Hankies bandanas are a damn fine alternative to the classic design, and if you don’t want a map of Devil’s Den State Park to adorn your neck, Hiker Hank has general use prints of stars, trees, knots, tracks and trail maintenance that you should probably own.
