The last third of the story was filmed at Squaw Mountain Ranch, a family oriented nudist resort outside Estacada, Oregon. It's a former logging camp, and the film needed a location with old cabins and RVs. Some of the members were extras in the "Birthday Party" scene. Established in 1933, Squaw Mountain Ranch is the oldest nudist club west of the Mississippi. It is open year-round, with rooms to rent in their lodge. See more »

An excellent naturalistic drama, with outstanding dialogue and some great performances to boot.
Although it feels generally slow-moving and takes a while to really get going, 'Leave No Trace' is a thoroughly compelling, realistic drama that expertly explores the father-daughter dynamic. The exposition-less script is refreshing, allowing the audience to actually think for themselves about the lives of the characters and how they got to where they are at the beginning of the film. All of the dialogue feels entirely natural (a testament to both the screenwriters and the actors) and this, combined with the subtle, yet nuanced direction, gives the film an almost documentary type feel, which fully compels the viewers to engage with the lives and central relationship of the protagonists. 7/10.
