Hiking and camping activities are already low-impact, aren't they?

Stay On Track

When you're trekking through parks and reserves, stay on the footpaths. This doesn't just ensure your safety and convenience, but it also minimizes the impact of your footprint (literally) on the surrounding environment. When there is no trail, take durability into account. Sandy or pebbly patches are durable. Tough stubby grasses and plants are more resistant than longer varieties. Keep durability in mind when you choose a spot for your tent as well.
