Re: [RC] re: trail markers - Barbara McCrary

We have similar restrictions in our nearby state park, that prohibits use of Dolomite on the ground.  So we use flagging and signs stapled to trees, hopefully above the reach of most hikers, but they still manage to pull off signs and flagging occasionally.  One time, a park ranger who had not been informed of our ride, pulled all the markings at a very strategic junction.  Fortunately, we discovered this before the ride, replaced the flagging, and had the supervisors inform the rangers of the upcoming event.

If you guys are allowed to use paint, you are so lucky.  For several years, I used this wonderful colored spray chalk that wears off over time to mark the BH trail.  Both the BLM and US Forest Service made me stop using it.  They won't let us permanently mark the trail either.  That's one of many reasons why the BH is so darn difficult to run and to mark.  Sigh...
