Leave No Trace

I'm volunteering my time to help clean up the trash found along the Maxine Lakin Nature Trail this weekend, and thought I'd share bit of information for those unfamiliar with hiking protocols.

There's an old adage in hiking and camping - Leave No Trace. Common hiking courtesy is to leave the area better than you found it, almost like you were never there.

Leave no trace is about making good decisions to protect the world around you - the world we all enjoy. Please do your part to pass our nation’s heritage of outdoor recreation to future generations while enjoying our beautiful Sonoran Desert.


  1. That's a nice thing to do, hope you went early in the morning before it hit 110. Cool video!

  2. Oh yeah, no need to become another statistic. I volunteer through HandsOn Greater Phoenix and when do these trailblazing/cleanup projects, or the Cool Roofs projects, we usually start at 7am and finish between 9am-11am.
