If it's purely for aesthetics and people (volunteers) want to put time and effort into it, then go for it. I'd rather they put the effort into dealing with the parking, camping, LNT enforcement issues - but whatever...

For me it's just a slippery slope between some rockwork and this:

There's not really much other option than to put man-made walkways through stuff like this, but it totally kills the natural appeal for me. I really don't want that in the Adirondacks. The rock work that was done on St. Regis mountain way way back never bothered me. It's seemed less prevalent in recent years, so perhaps 20 years or so has settled some of the man-made stuff to make it look more natural.
