comment Minimizing impact of small groups on wilderness areas
I think your answer would make a better comment. Great job for pointing out that some areas are inappropriate for off-trail usage, but that doesn't answer how to behave in areas where it is appropriate, which I think is important to know to leave those places as 'wild' as possible.

comment Wild berries in Southern California
Wild strawberries are quite common in the mountains of San-Diego county. The deer love them too, so you have to be diligent!

comment Minimizing impact of small groups on wilderness areas
@gerrit: A very specific example where it is an issue: I worked at an outdoor-education-facility that had access to a forrest. Small groups would use it year round for exploration and education. The goal was to minimize human impact on the forrest as much as possible, so that each group would find it as "wild" as the group before. I feel the same way about the wilderness in California's high-impact parks. I want those who come after me to have the same experience I had. I go there to get away from trails, not to partake in their creation, which becomes more difficult when travelling in groups.
