Leave No Trace
Limit your impact to the land so that others can enjoy the same view. Don’t create cairns, tree blazes, or any other sign to mark the trail - people should be able to navigate their own route. The agency with the responsibility for managing the land (PCF and partners) will determine which markings are appropriate and effective.
I have the best job a retired person could have. I get to spend time in the woods a couple times a week and get to contribute to the community by providing paths to nature for folks to enjoy.

DON’T TOSS YOUR TRASH – not even items that are biodegradable such as banana peels. It is not good for animals to eat nonnative foods, and who wants to look at your old banana peel while it ever-so-slowly decomposes? If you packed it in, pack it out.
