On the surface, backpacking offers the freedom to take your equipment and head out into the wilderness, camping wherever the mood strikes.  Sounds romantic, right?  The reality, however, is many areas place restrictions on dispersed camping and the number of backpackers that can enter the backcountry on a given day.  To protect the environment, many areas also have specific rules for backcountry use and require permits.  It is important to understand where you can backpack and the rules you must follow.
