Stay On The Trail has a solid post about not going off trail and the damage off trail travel can do.

Have you ever seen someone trampling rare lichens above tree  line by hiking outside designated trails? Camping illegally on an open summit? Cutting down krumholz to fuel a fire? Carving their initials into a shelter? Building a new fire ring? Washing their dishes with soap in a wilderness pond? Knocking over rock cairns? Breaking live tree branches near a campsite for a fire? Digging a trench around their tent to drain rain? Leaving toilet paper on top of the ground? " has lots of good discussion topics with this post.
