And The Crowd Goes Wild!!!

Have you ever witnessed a user created shortcut along trail switchbacks? While these additional trails may look harmless, unnecessary erosion occurs, thereby damaging the actual trail. In addition, vegetation alongside the trail, which may be home to sensitive wildlife habitats including plants and animals, gets trampled as the trail is widened. Leave No Trace recommends to avoid cutting trail switchbacks as you travel along the established trail.
Going up! The trail goes to the right, the shortcut to the left.
Leave No Trace is your one stop shop to learn more about why it is important to Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces. Be like Bigfoot and Leave No Trace!

Respect the Resource...Kate and Tracy
