Leave No Trace Principles

  1. Plan Ahead & Prepare
    Adequate trip planning and preparation helps backcountry travelers accomplish trip goals safely and enjoyably, while simultaneously minimizing damage to the land.
  2. Travel & Camp On Durable Surfaces
    The goal of travel in the outdoors is to move through natural areas while avoiding damage to the land or waterways. Understanding how travel causes impacts is necessary to accomplish this goal.
  3. Dispose of Waste Properly
    The Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics encourages outdoor enthusiasts to consider the impacts that they leave behind, which will undoubtedly affect other people, water, and wildlife.
  4. Leave What You Find
    Allow others a sense of discovery by leaving rocks, plants, archaeological artifacts, and other objects of interest as you find them.
  5. Minimize Campfire Impacts The use of campfires, once a necessity for cooking and warmth, is steeped in history and tradition. The development of lightweight, efficient camp stoves has encouraged a shift away from the traditional fire for cooking—and they Leave No Trace.
  6. Respect Wildlife
    Learn about wildlife through quiet observation. Do not disturb wildlife or plants just for a “better look.” Observe wildlife from a distance so they are not scared or forced to flee.
  7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors
    One of the most important components of outdoor ethics is to maintain courtesy toward other visitors. Excessive noise, uncontrolled pets, and damaged surroundings take away from the natural appeal of the outdoors.
