In Central Washington, experiencing the outdoors is in our nature. We are committed to inspiring your love and appreciation for the natural world, but we also aim to help you protect and care for it, as well as stay safe as you explore it. We're happy to help you discover your passion for the wilderness, learn how to navigate it safely, improve your on-trail experience, and lessen your impact on the places you love for adventurers of the present and future.






Leave No Trace

One of the easiest ways to protect our beloved trails and natural places is to leave those places untouched by your visit. The seven principles of Leave No Trace are:

1. Plan Ahead & Prepare
2. Travel & Camp on Durable Surfaces
3. Dispose of Waste Properly
4. Leave What You Find
5. Minimize Campfire Impacts
6. Respect Wildlife
7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors





By following these principles, not only will you preserve the natural experiences for those who follow in your footsteps, but you'll also be making sure the trail is in good shape when you return. A little responsibility goes a long way.
