Stone steps along the Mt Tecumseh Trail in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire in May 2016. A herd path has formed on the right-hand side of the steps from hikers avoiding (not using) the steps. Hikers are also avoiding the steps by using the old section of trail that is on the left-hand side of the steps. If these herd paths are not blocked off, it will lead to more erosion issues in this section of trail. And this defeats the purpose of the staircase. These steps are only a couple of years old.
