On almost any hike, you’re likely to encounter other people on the trail. Good trail etiquette helps ensure that everyone enjoys their experience outdoors and that the trail is left in good condition for its next visitors. In this outdoor skills video, AMC experts Eboni Cooper and Mike Miccuci explain how to be a good steward on the trail.
Eboni Cooper is the New York/New Jersey outdoor programming coordinator for AMC’s Youth Opportunities Program. Based in New York City, Cooper assists in youth adventures, trip-planning support, and equipment requests.
Mike Miccuci works at the front desk of AMC’s Pinkham Notch Visitor Center, answering questions and giving advice to hikers, climbers, and skiers looking to explore the White Mountain National Forest.
This video is based on how-to instruction from AMC’s Mountain Skills Manual (AMC Books, 2017) by Christian Bisson and Jamie Hannon, and was filmed, edited, and produced by Timber & Frame Media, with production assistance from AMC Outdoors’ managing editor, Ryan Smith.
