I have seen examples of all these things as well, and I don't even work outdoors; I'm an occasional backcountry visitor and I have volunteered for several roadside cleanups. There is a lot of this...

Thanks, Dave.

Hey DS, if you know something new about that culvert, please let us all know!

FYI, the book required hundreds of hours of time, and ended up costing me money (not quite breakeven). So it was fun,...

If you consider Shingletree Pond, check in advance for any claustrophobia among the group. The Shingletree culvert is the longest and narrowest of the Northway "walking culverts." It's walkable...

"Following the science" has become a popular meme. Certainly, many activities impact the forest. So why then is this thread about just one type of "trail development?"
