Personally I clear and do simple maintainence on state land trails whenever I hike so I do not feel I should have to pay extra to use them.I would just like to see more do the same.I feel I would be foolish to think that my fee going to the state for hiking would actually be used to maintain trails. I believe the fee would either go in some politicians pocket or to another social program that is totally unrelated to what I'm paying for.
Well said. That is what is wrong with the system today.
