Hiker demonstrating how easy it is to avoid two stone steps along the Mt Tecumseh Trail in the New Hampshire White Mountains on an autumn day in 2020. When building stone steps along a trail, the norm is to place scree (rocks) or brush alongside the steps. The latter is usually done because it looks natural. Placing the scree and / or brush on the side of the steps discourages hikers from going around the steps, and potentially creating more trail erosion issues.
