Respect The Trail

Most trails are maintained by trail clubs, whose members volunteer countless hours of their time, blood, sweat, and tears building, re-routing and maintaining these pathways through our wild areas.
We ask hikers to be mindful of this on their walks.
Use established campsites and fire rings. Never build a new fire ring, unless it’s an emergency, and make sure the fire is out, and stones returned after use. If necessary, a stealth site should be 200 ft away from the trail and water sources, and no evidence of your passing should be left behind.
Stay on the trails, to minimize your impact on the flora surrounding it. If you do go off trail to relieve yourself, avoid trampling fragile vegetation. Make sure all human waste is either buried properly or carried out.
Hike through puddles and mud, rather than around them, to keep from widening the trail, and creating extra work for our trail maintainers.
