Remembering loved ones

The Hills are an important place for many to remember their loved ones.  If you choose to scatter the ashes of a loved one on the Hills, we ask that you avoid the most popular areas and the tops of the Hills.  Please scatter the ashes over a wide area to leave no trace.

Please do not leave any flowers, trinkets, photographs or any other objects on the Hills to mark the site.
