Mud season – now what?

Leave No Trace - April 28, 2016

Mammoth, CA: True or false – You should walk around a mud puddle to avoid damaging the trails? False. Walking around a mud puddle can lead to trail widening by damaging the vegetation. It is best to walk single file through the mud puddle to protect the integrity of the trails and plant life. So get dirty (or wear the proper attire) and enjoy mud season!
