Quandary over Quads-follow up 2
Following Wicklore's previous posts, I'd like to share an experience last Sunday in the Galtees. While ascending Galtybeg from the E in the mist and strengthening winds, my friend and myself heard what sounded like bikes in the distance. True enough, some scramblers appeared. They continued up to the summit ridge of Galtybeg and passed us out as we had our lunch at the top. My friend (who's a park ranger in the Peak District) was not at all impressed toward the damage and erosion these scramblers were causing. One got their back tyre stuck and caused significant erosion to the ground. It was also very windy and misty on top of Galtybeg, and they would have been a hazard to hill-walkers and to themselves, needing rescue if the unforseen were to happen. What can hill-walkers do in such situations? Is there a number to ring on the day? Does anyone bother? What is the normal policy for reporting such cases? With the strength of the agricultural lobby in Ireland where access is potentially an issue in many foothills in Eire for hill-walkers: Could it be the case that hill-walkers are not the greatest thought-of cause of "trespass", erosion and damage to upland areas after all?
