P ractice "Leave no trace" by taking your trash with you until you can discard it accordingly in the next trail town.   

Thanks for keeping the Great Allegheny Passage a trash free trail.

*There are chemical toilets at the campgrounds, but limited potable water. We recommend that you carry at least a quart of water more than you think you need.  Take advantage of the towns along the way for water resupply.
