11 Essentials For Hiking and Backpacking

Dijukno, you can Leave No Trace by packing a bag or two in your backpack to help pick up litter, and pack it out on a hiking or a backpacking trip?  I lead group hikes, and like to carry
at least three of those plastic grocery bags so happily provided by the grocery store.  I like to lead by example, and let other hikers decide on their own if they would like to pitch in.  I've packed out two full bags on hikes such as the Eucher Bar Trail coming back out of the canyon of approximately 1,800 ft. elevation gain in 1.5 miles.  I found this you tube video that provides photo's of this beautiful trail.

  1. As a hiker and an outdoor adventurists, I would like to preserve the forests and mountains for the future generations.

  2. I definitely support your cause, since I to love going out trekking and other camping activities.

  3. It is indeed essential to keep the environment clean and green. Waste materials like plastics should be kept and never be thrown anywhere. As a hiker and climber, I always have receptacles for my plastic waste products. By the way, it is also important to always have a buck knife in your bag so you can use it in case of emergency.
