As we always use Alabama hills as our first stop/night when we go to the mountains,
most times spend 3-4 days each trip in area.
As most of you that use the hills you know it has heavy use and this may be the down fall.
We were there last week and talking to a local who knows/cares that due to miss use by
inconsiderate campers, improper human waste disposal, expanded camp site beyond
existing sites which destroy plants, fire pits used as dump sites, left burning. atv's,side by sides,
4x4's and yes your stock street rigs off trail.along this line i have noticed on the hiking/mtb trails there
are sections Uphill being torn up by the latest toy the elect mtb the power tears up the trail base
Anyone who has been to the hills knows the above is true.
So the word starting to surface is limited use, sounds like entrance control/fees.
Easy to do as there is only 2 access points (yes i know the back way in but most do not)
Vault toilets, some one has to pay for them.
I almost agree as all you have to do is take a walk/hike anywhere in the hills and you will
find tp,crap,behind rocks, bushes near any camp site.
Was told head counts are being done to give power for next step.
Been going to the hills for over 40 years guess all good thing come to a end!
Just my thoughts.yours may differ.
