Although our trails are becoming more commercialized, I'm not sure that the reference to the Sierra Club's oposition is entirely relevant to the state park and National Forest Service trails in our area. The trails are not being industrialized nor motorized. Building on these properties is forbidden and the trails are only available to hikers, bicycles, and horseback riders - no motorized vehicles. Access to the trails is by US highways, state, or local county roads and that is as far as the "motorized" part goes. As far as "commercialized" goes, some of the area residents make some money from it. What's wrong with that? In the mean time, what better way to promote the Nation's outdoor recreational possibilities?
