+rjb43nh Posted September 18, 2008 Share Posted September 18, 2008 At what point did NPS assume control over lands they don't own? The A.T. is actually the Appalachian National Scenic Trail and is part of the NPS(U.S. Dept. of the Interior). Although the trail is a patchwork of over 200 separate jurisdictions, the NPS does own a fair amount of the land (e.g., Great Smokey Mountain National Park) along the 2178 mile trail. They have agreements with many land owners as well. The National Forests the trail goes through (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture) have different objectives, one being multiple use, and the rules can conflict. Renegade Knight-"You do realize this is backwards. The NPS is archiving caches wholesale and leaving it to the owner to show they are good where they are.... "I understand what you're saying but to be correct, Groundspeak is archiving caches wholesale at the 'request' of the NPS. The net effect is the same. Quote Link to comment
