Two stone steps covered in leaf drop 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.
