Be mindful of your surroundings.

I remember reading about this shortly after LH died. I wish I could remember the exact wording of what I read. In effect, it said that scattering cremated remains wasn't allowed at X location.  If you did it anyway,  do it off the main path, because if another visitor saw something that could be identified as human remains, or realized what you were doing, it would be unsettling for them. I think it was a state park.

So in essence if you're going to flout the rules, be discreet about it.

That's what I did-- I was in a national park, and honestly, I have no idea what the policy is. So I found an isolated area and made sure there was nobody around. I only scattered a small amount, and it just took a few seconds.
