    Who thinks there are too many leaves in Pisgah

    They are making trail conditions horrible.
    I think forest services should limit the number of trees allowed in the forest.

    Most of the leaves have people spread out over a lot of trail, so unless someone is trying to hike say Cove Creek at the start of the leaf drop, I don't think that leaves really interfere with other forest users very much.

    I do like the recent trend of trees to offer some shorter leaf drops. Not all of us are cut out for 60-70 billion leaves in Pisgah in one day. Trees like the Oak and the new Poplar give more people a chance to finish...

    Well now that you mention it, I do blame them.
    They should be actively removing trees and raking the current leaf fall.

    People in places like Utah don't have the problems we have because they have managed to take care of their tree problem.

    You just need to run some real tires instead of those sissyboy Exthiwolfs, Athpens, and Gay Saguaros which you seem to be so fond of. Until then we can keep calling you Crathsh.

    Just because you talk like that in real life, doesn't mean you have to type like that.
    I think maybe you have been spending too much time in Scotland lately staring up mens kilts.

    When I lived in Charlotte they used leaf blowers to keep the trails clear of leaves. I don't understand why they can't do that here.

    Leaf blowers will disturb my nature trip. If they can rake them by hand, that would be much better. Also removal is important too so they don't end up back on the trail.

    So you are saying you want the area surrounding the trails logged? The FS will love the idea.
    He/she who works the trails does so in their own image.

    Heading out today, hopefully somebody cleared the leaves, moved some rocks and smoothed everything out because this sh!t is getting ridiculous.

    Even the tourists are starting to complain.

    That's just uncalled for...First the leaves and now this.
    Just don't tell me you ran across wet leaves because I can't take that kind of stress this time of the year.

    Unfortunately it is true, and if that isn't bad enough, I even had to walk through several streams. I mean could somebody please put a bridge here?

    I can't believe that you didn't just manual the creek and then ride the skinny. Must have had a rain drop in your eye.

    I totally would have but the extra weight from the rain prevented me from doing the manual and the wet made the skinny too slick.....not to mention trying to stop in all the leaves afterwards from the mad speed I would have been doing in order to pull it off.

    But when you are at my level, you will understand.
