Reminder: No Open Fires

Thursday, June 28, 2012

The East Coast Trail Association’s policy is that open fires are strictly prohibited. Respecting this policy becomes even more important in times of dry, hot weather.

Remember to leave no trace
* Take only pictures. Leave plants and wildlife undisturbed.
* Pack it in… pack it out. Remove all trash, left over food and litter.
* No open fires. Carry a camping stove.
