Mt Tecumseh Trail in the New Hampshire White Mountains on a wet spring day in May 2017. This staircase was built sometime after July 1, 2013. And a herd path has already formed on the right side of the steps from hikers avoiding the steps. Hikers are also avoiding the steps by using the old section of trail that is on the left side of the steps. When herd paths are not blocked off it creates more erosion issues along trails, and this defeats the purpose of building the staircase.
