As far as needing a nanny, of course we don't. But as long as we can sue people that allow us to act stupid, we are going to have nanny laws. If I can sue the state of Tennessee (or any other state) for allowing me to get myself killed, they probably are not going to want me to get killed.

Of course that might not be it. It could just be that those sissy city folks don't want horse poo on their boots.

I'm not going to argue with you concerning government nanny state etc, because We'd probably agree...
Actually don't have a problem with motor vehicles on horse trails. I can see keeping them off some fragile trails due to the damage they can cause. That was one of the big reasons for me to get into horses, several of the areas I liked to ride in were being shut down due to the damage done to them. One of the main areas was a watershed, foot and horses are still allowed in there.

Celeste, horse poo on the trail is a huge complaint out here in Oregon from hikers (mainly city folk). I hear hikers complain about it all the time and even had a few get nasty with me over it. Mainly it's those on the Pacific Crest Trail in wilderness areas, guess horse poop isn't natural enough for them. But I'm pretty darn sure from the human poop piles/tissue I've seen they are also using natures toilet and not hauling it out.

You mean someone started this post with a question? ****, forgot all about it.

Answered my question too actually. I was curious about AT myself thinking it was similar to Pacific Crest trail and something I would like to try myself someday.

Darrin, after hiking and riding in the Rockies and around the AT there is NO comparison. None.. I loved the different parts of the Smokies and the AT but after hiking and riding a few days in Estes Park, CO I ended up amazed at the difference..I love it out there. So much space.

I consider the Appalachians foot hills but pretty foot hills. Would love to spend some time exploring them.

One thing about the eastern side of our country --- we don't get eaten by grizzly bears here. I am a bit south to the Appalachians. We don't even have black bears except once in a while. Lots of nice timber rattlers.........
