    I drove up there earlier this year, and saw the damage. Disheartening. I almost wish the USFS never put in a small parking lot, and provided info on how to find the site.

    Ask it it is allowed when checking in. If they say no, don’t do it. It’s common curtesy.

    The title of the thread is Black Bear Versus Wild Hog, and it is in the Great Smoky Mountains forum, where no grizzly bears exist, so I assumed we were discussing black bears specifically.

    The only bear mentioned in that article is the grizzly bear, not the black bear. The grizzly bear often hunts large animals, the black bear rarely does. This thread is about black bears.

    Pictures show 4 small notches in the trowel. I wonder if they really help in cutting through small roots, of if it is just an unsubstantiated claim.

    I’ve often seen some of the smaller parking areas completely full, so if you park there with a vehicle and trailer you are taking up an extra space that another hiker could have used.

    Don’t you use road maps, and road signs, when going somewhere you haven’t been before. A marker tree is just a road sign. I doubt there are many, if any, Indian marker trees left.
