@TomIrvine Outdoor ethics are definitely important! It is great to encourage all to get outside, but our goal is to minimize our impact on these outdoor places. For new trail users, the seven principles of Leave No Trace are a great place to start...and always something more experienced folks can review. Lnt.org is a wonderful resource on this topic.
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
