    Basil Seggos needs to go. By maintaining insufficient Ranger staffing, he not only is hindering trail safety and damage efforts, he is inviting tragedy – both human and environmental. We need Ranger boots on the trails, not in trucks.

    There used to be part-time ‘assistant rangers’ who didn’t necessarily have law enforcement powers but could ‘patrol’ and advise and assist hikers. This would be a good idea. Or a simple expanded volunteer ‘trail steward’ program.
