193 The Backcountry Ripple Effect

The second part of a two part series on the saturation of our trails by novice hikers. We discussed in our last episode what new hikers are experiencing and how this increased saturation is causing a deeper ripple effect. Are their solutions that can be done to support the increase interest and education? And what would that look like? Should Leave No Trace play a bigger role? How is Search and Rescue handling 2021?
