The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace offer a comprehensive guide for minimal impact practices in outdoor spaces. These principles apply to all settings, from remote wilderness to local parks and backyards, and across numerous recreational activities. While widely recognized, these principles are not static. Leave No Trace constantly revises them based on research and the latest insights from experts in biology, land management, and outdoor education.

Plan Ahead & Prepare

Know the regulations and special concerns for the area you’ll visit. Planning contributes to accomplishing trip goals safely and enjoyably.

Travel & camp on durable surfaces

Use only established trails and campsites. Move through natural areas while avoiding damage to the land or waterways.

Dispose of waste properly

Pack it in, pack it out. Inspect your site. Pack out all trash, leftover food, and litter. Check for proper disposal bins if available!

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. Preserve the past

Minimize campfire impacts

Keep fires small. Only use sticks from the ground that can be broken by hand. A true Leave No Trace fire shows no evidence of having been constructed!

Respect Wildlife

Protect wildlife and your food by storing rations and trash securely. Travel quietly and do not pursue, feed or force animals to flee.

Be considerate of other visitors

Be courteous toward other visitors. Yield to other users on the trail. Let nature’s sounds prevail

DIY Trail
Cleanup Kit

Here are a few tools you can bring with you to help keep the trails looking good for everyone to enjoy!

Bring Trash Bags

Use trash bags (or buckets) to collect trash on the trail. If bins are nearby, empty your bag to keep your load light!

Always Have Water!

As the days get hotter, it is important to stay hydrated, especially when you’re on our trails doing such important work!

Use Gloves

If a trash grabber is not available, gloves are the perfect way to protect your hands from sharp items.

Wear a Mask

Wearing a mask is important to keep yourself and others safe. It also helps when you find items that are dusty, sandy, etc.

Check the Weather

Know the weather before going outdoors. Check the local news for extreme heat alerts and safety tips.

Avoid Peak Hours

Slow down on strenuous activity and exercise during the hottest points of the day – especially during the sun’s peak hours of 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Stay Hydrated

Drink water often. Keep your reusable water bottle with you and don’t forget to refill!

Stay in Shade

Wear sunscreen with a high sun protector factor rating (at least SPF 15), shades, and a hat to protect your face and head.

Eat Fresh Foods

Enjoy a bowl of cooling foods such as fresh fruit or a salad. Maybe even a popsicle, or two.

Dress Light

Wear light, loose-fitting, and light-colored clothing.
