Some trail tips

Leave no trace. Don't litter or damage the flora.

Our climate is hot much of the year, make sure to carry adequate water and dress properly including shading headwear and  appropriate, not open-toed, shoes.

Take a map and a compass, a good map can be downloaded from the site. Trail map software is available for cell phones, AllTrails is very good.

Stay on the trails. Going off trail damages wildlife habitat and flora. There are more hazards off trail.

Watch where you are walking, there are prominent roots and rocks, great tripping hazards. Also stepping on a snake is a good way to get bitten.

Take a cellular phone, all of Baxter has good coverage. 

Plan your path, loops are more satisfying than out and back.

Let someone know you are on the trails and when you expect to return.

Slow down, the trails are best experienced when you move slowly and quietly. Savor the moment. Enjoy...
