The public lands of Lake County are a beautiful and wild, but destructible, resource. Every acre requires and deserves proactive efforts to survive without human environmental damage. By following the Center for Outdoor Ethics’ Leave No Trace Seven Principles, our lands will remain unspoiled for all to enjoy.

The Leave No Trace blog offers many valuable videos and written resources for adventurers, and LCSAR encourages you to become an educated and engaged steward of our landscape. The Center has also worked with the Colorado Tourism Office to create a video and brochure to teach Leave No Trace-focused preparation for the backcountry. LCSAR asks all outdoor enthusiasts to leave Lake County better than you’ve found it.

The Leave No Trace Seven Principles:

  1. Plan Ahead and Prepare
  2. Travel and 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
