Leave No TracePlease keep in mind that White River National Forest is a “Leave No Trace” area, meaning that everything you bring into the forest, you must pack out. This includes trash and food scraps. Make sure that campfires are completely extinguished, and do not carry out any rocks, flora, fauna or any other items that you find. Take only pictures, and leave only footprints.
