* In some parts of California, hiking off-trail is ill advised as you may stumble into a drug cartel operation (usually pot) and/or their booby traps. Or you might just stumble across somebody who already did... Members of the Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service take these warnings ''very'' seriously.

** Siberia consists of ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taiga taiga]]'', which is the Northern coniferous forest with spruces, pines and birches dominant, and ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tundra tundra]]'', which is semi-desert permafrost where only the hardiest vegetation can survive. Even the ''Mongols'' dared not to venture to taiga, not alone to tundra.

** Interestingly, Siberia can provide the woods-wise settler everything he needs: safety, shelter, game, fish, berries, mushrooms and arable land. In the 1970s Soviet surveyors, using helicopters, found previously unknown ''villages'', complete with Orthodox churches, in Siberia. The inhabitants were religious people who had run away the Communist regime in the 1920s to Siberia, and lived there without any contact to outside world - unknown of the Stalinist era, WWII and Khryushchev's era.

* Pretty much ''[[CrapsackWorld every]]'' forest in the [[WarhammerFantasy Warhammer World]] is filled with brigands, wolves, goblins, giant spiders, mutants, beastmen, minotaurs, cockatrices, chimeras, or even worse things. The forest of [[HiddenElfVillage Athel Loren]] is in mainly ways the least scary, because the xenophobic Wood Elves will just shoot you full of arrows.
** That's really just if you're lucky. You're at least equally as likely to get lost on [[LostWoods twisted, maddening paths]] that lead only where the forest wants them to lead, at which point all manner of suck will happen.
