Leave No Trace Principal #2: Travel & Camp on Durable Surfaces⠀
—⠀
Concentrated use in fragile areas, whether hiking off trail or in camp, can cause lasting damage that takes years to recover. ⠀

In the Sawtooths, we’re fortunate to have large areas of rocky terrain, granite slabs, and gravel areas that are relatively durable for travel and camping. But there are also riparian areas and meadows that are more fragile and require care or avoidance. If traveling in areas that receive significant traffic, we try our best to confine our travel and camping to areas that are already impacted and where additional impact won’t do significant harm. @leavenotracecenter #dedicatedtoyouradventure
