I know some DEC rangers have given up on posting the "NPT" trail markers on the Northville-Placid Trail because they just get stolen too quickly by hikers looking to keep souvenirs. Instead, those rangers have switched back to just using the classic generic "Foot Trail" markers.

I'm sure it can be frustrating to spend time and effort remarking a lengthy stretch of that trail only to have the majority of the markers disappear within a year or two. And apparently, brand new markers are the most prized by the souvenir takers so the recently remarked sections are prime targets for the most vandalism.
