Some of the lesser used paths (not a huge trail, but a well defined path) have markers and I always think...if you need markers to follow the path, should you really be out here? But the folks that chop on the trees, what are they thinking? They're just slowly killing the trees.
I just pulled some garbage out of trees yesterday on the Douglas Trail. This was the part of the trail before the turnoff to Eagle Falls. Who needs a flag for that trail?P.S. the gorge was more full than I have ever seen it. There were about 30 cars along the road near the canoe launch and I passed a ton of people on the Douglas Trail. I was the one with the 3 small kids if we passed you
Yes, cairns are signs and reminders of humanity, but so are the trails themselves. So are the trailheads you start at, the trail markers you follow, the maps/GPSs you bring, and the protected National Parks that you travel in. In fact, if you blame cairns for destroying your wilderness experience, you probably have a misguided view of the uniqueness of your journey.
