Cell Phones - Yes cell phones have a negative impact on the
AT, but not because of hikers carrying cell phones.
I'm not sure that is true. There are measures like public
perception and its impact, connectivity's impact on the Trail experience and
wilderness, and physical Trail changes due to cell phone-induced activities that go
completely unnoticed by most. These invisible changes have huge potential impact
on the Trail's state and quality - but mostly on its philosophical meaning.
The fact that these things aren't recognized is worse enough...
