Ethics on the Trail
Miners Needle
Leave it like this for others to enjoy.
TREAD LIGHTLY
Take pictures and memories — leave nothing.
Never pick wildflowers, photograph them instead.
Stay on the trail, especially on switchbacks.
Leave gates, cabins and other structures the way you find them.
Avoid camping in meadows, you’ll trample grass.
Leave a campsite clean; restore it to its natural condition.
Respect other visitors’ desire for solitude.
PACK IT IN — PACK IT OUT
Everything you take in must be taken out.
Bring trash bags to carry out all trash that cannot be completely burned.
Don’t bury trash. Animals will dig it up.
Cigarette butts, orange peels, apple core and candy wrappers are litter!
Bury human waste in a hole 4-6 inches deep (in soil, not in sand) at least 300 feet away from water sources. Do not bury or burn the toilet paper.
FIRE
Use gas stoves, when possible, to conserve firewood.
If you need to build a fire, use an existing campfire ring.
Use only fallen timber or firewood you have brought with you.
WATER
Camp away from existing water. Camps should be at least 300 feet from water sources.
Don’t pollute the water.
Protect riparian corridors.
Do not wash in streams or springs. Pour wash water on the ground away from streams and springs.
LEAVE WHAT YOU FIND — PROTECT CULTURAL RESOURCES
