From the article, I have found a combo of 1 and 2 works best, this way you are covered for all the food you like and need for the planned outing/extra days if needed, and also not relying/waiting for dinner after a long day on the trail.

Even when going on large paid-trail rides where meals are planned, I like to bring my own, I just don't feel comfortable relying on others, also ensures you get enough food.grin

More than tread lightly. Leave it like you were never there, nor anyone else.
