See individual park chapters for information on backcountry camping. The use of stoves for cooking is mandatory; campfires are not permitted at every campsite. To help keep water clean, use washbasins and drain pits provided and use biodegradable soap. Pack out all garbage, use food caches and always maintain a clean campsite. If you plan to do extensive hiking or backpacking, I suggest you purchase and read one of the hiking guides listed in the Bibliography. So many mountains... so little time.
Although rare, tick bites can cause serious illness. Take precautions to avoid them by walking on cleared trails and avoid rubbing against bushes and tall grass or lounging on grassy areas. Tuck pant legs into socks and check yourself for ticks during and after your hike. If you find an embedded tick, in most cases it can carefully be removed so that the mouthparts do not stay in your skin. Wash the area with soap and water and use an antiseptic. If you cannot remove the tick or if the area becomes infected or a rash develops, see a doctor immediately.
