In this episode, Darwin is joined by Executive Director of the Arizona Trail Association, Matt Nelson, to discuss the overcrowding issues that are starting to plague long-distance trails like the AT, PCT, & the AZT. What does it take to run a trail association & manage the impact on the environment? Is Education, Permits, or Funding the answer to this growing problem? Is there such a thing as "too many hikers" on the trail?
