Marking the Trail Naturally

Marking the Trail Naturally

One of the simplest and easiest things that you can do to prevent becoming lost when hiking in the mountains or wooded areas is to mark your trail along the way. Placing a few rocks in a pile makes a very good trail marker and doesn't damage the environment. This is especially important when there is a fork in the trail or the trail is not readily visible due to plant growth, etc. that may be obscuring the actual trail.

Don't rely too much on trail signs that may be posted in the area by the rangers or forest service. They generally indicate the start of a trail area and may be the only ones you will see.

Staying above the water line!
