    Robes or coats and go as deep into the wooded aria as possible.

    I would not even begin to know....Illegle is illeagle, there is no more or less only inturpritations and leinencies.

    What you need to do first is double check the local dress codes for your aria. To tell you the truth here it is leagle for a woman to go topless (with some restrictions that I can't remember but...)

    I'm sure if it's in the middle of the woods your chances of being caught are quite slim. However, if you're just going for the pure morality of it, I would find it rare if any dress code allowed nudity in a public park.

    Pasties are legal...what you call "modesty patches."

    I don't believe in the "disrobe at the last second" suggestion. With any but the most experienced of nude models this is a terrible idea. Most people need a few minutes at the very least to get comfortable in their skin. Disrobing at the last second will likely leave your model feeling too exposed.

    That said, have a robe on hand, and be prepared to run.

    Should be pretty safe. Assuming that you're not going to be standing right on the trail, you'll see anyone walking by long before they see you. Unless you're just being really loud... With it being winter, it will be a little harder to hide (no leaves), but it's still easier than you think. You'd be suprised how many people won't notice you just 30 or 40 feet off the trail (making no attempt to hide, just standing there)... In the summer that distance changes to 10-20 feet, lol.

    I've done far worse than that in the woods at public parks in & around Dallas...

    have a few people spread out with radios to let you know if someone is coming.

    Timing is everything. These kinds of shots are most often done before or after a major rainstorm when few people are likely to be around. Early Sunday morning is another good time.

    Doing nude work in public brings on a great responsibility for the safety of your model. If possible, have one or two people with you to act as lookout not only for possible indecent exposure problems, but people who may want to harm you and your model. If allowed where you live or you if you have a CWP, carry a gun. It may seem extreme, but better safe then sorry.
