When muddy trails are traveled on—by boots, tires or otherwise—the ground can be seriously damaged. Hiking on the trail in suboptimal conditions leads to closures due to path displacement, and attempting to avoid puddles can quickly lead to accidental trail widening and destroyed vegetation. If the trail is wet where you are hiking, show your care for Idaho and save your trek for a drier day.

As Idaho begins to bloom this season, always remember to avoid muddy trails and stepping off of marked paths—both of which cause severe, immediate erosion and damage to vegetation (like those beautiful wildflowers!).
