The 7 Principles of Leave No Trace: Vasquez Rocks
Created by the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, these 7 Principles ensure that hikers can enjoy our land in the most responsible way.
The 7 Principles are:
Plan Ahead and Prepare. Map your route, check the weather, pack accordingly. Vasquez Rocks are often quite warm, so bring loads of water.
Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces. Think designated trails and rock surfaces.
Dispose of Waste Properly. Anything you pack in must be packed right back out, from snacks to sunscreen to water bottles.
Leave What you Find. Don't pick wildflowers or touch artifacts along the trails.
Minimize Campfire Impacts. Follow local fire regulations (in this case, you need to obtain a permit beforehand).
Respect Wildlife. As curious as you may be, enjoy the wild animals from a safe distance.
Be Considerate of Others. You are likely to pass other hikers here, so no loud music or voices. Ensure that others can enjoy nature in peace.
Overall, these 7 Principles of Leave No Trace are all about respect. Respecting nature, respecting wildlife, and respecting other humans.
Let's preserve the land so that we can all enjoy nature together for a long time forward! Check out the blog for more. ♡
