It's tough to balance conservation of limited resources and big-brother society. Glad it's not my job. I think the FS response to both the Egg trail and the bikers is totally ridiculous.
The Church land is private, and technically they don't allow climbing on it, they just turn a blind eye. Seems to me that any attention is bad attention, so strictly my opinion is that we don't do service projects on their land, with or without permission. In other words, if we ask to build a trail on church property, I can see the church responding, "No you're not supposed to be up there anyway." If we build the trail w/out permission, it's probably worse.
I'm sure we could get away with cleanup of trash, and "shoring up" an unstable area, but I felt like the project on saturday went a little beyond "shoring up". Either way, complex issue for sure. Let's get back to fighting about the geezer wall and ripping on MP.com
