'Freedom to Roam' Rules Pt. 3

Welcome back to part 3 of my 'Freedom to Roam' Rules & Etiquette - Series! 

I know how to do my business in the forest
Dig a pit if you have to do you business, you know what I mean...
Toilet paper should be buried or set on fire (unless there is a fire ban), so that it does not blow around in the mountains, in the woods or anywhere else really, that's just nasty.
Below you can see a film about how you fulfill your needs in nature.

I do not damage forest and land

 The right of public access gives you a fantastic opportunity to walk, run, cycle, ride and ski in nature. But there are limitations.

For example, you may not do it on a field or meadow with newly sown or growing crops, forest plantations or other plantings. Sometimes it can be difficult to determine, especially in the case of a stubble field, therefore, always ask the landowner before entering the area.

And if you are one of many who are doing the same thing - keep in mind that together you can harm nature, even if you alone meant no harm.

If you ride or cycle in the terrain - be extra careful. Avoid soft paths and sensitive ground types. Remember to avoid making new paths!

In national parks, nature reserves or other protected areas, there are often special provisions regarding the right of public access. This may mean that the right of public access has been extended or that it is limited. There are often signs that tell you what applies, but you can also do your research before visiting the park.
