NH Fish & Game and the White Mountain National Forest request that you follow Recreate Responsibly guidelines.
Know Before You Go: Check the status of the place you want to visit. If it is closed, don't go. If it's crowded, have a backup plan.
Practice Physical Distancing: Keep your group size small. Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth and give others space. If you are sick, stay home.
Plan Ahead: Prepare for facilities to be closed, pack lunch, and bring essentials like hand sanitizer and a face covering.
Play It Safe: Slow down and choose lower-risk activities to reduce your risk of injury. Search and rescue operations and health care resources are both strained.
Explore Locally: Limit long-distance travel and make use of local parks, trails, and public spaces. Be mindful of your impact on the communities you visit.
Leave No Trace: Respect public lands and waters, as well as Native and local communities. Take all your garbage with you. Pack it in, pack it out and pack it home.
Build an Inclusive Outdoors: Be an active part of making the outdoors safe and welcoming for all identities and abilities.
