People may see the trash and complain, enough complaints and smoking maybe eliminated altogether. No matter how small, make sure to pick up your trash.

The end of Summer is always extremely hot and dry. Tossing a joint or lit roach could have devastating effects on the dry areas around you, ruining the trails around you, which is not only bad for you but other hikers as well. Always be smart and make sure to abide by the fire laws in your surrounding area.
