    Quote from Trillium: “Quote from LIhikers: “My wife and I have told our sons that while we'd like our ashes scattered on a hiking trail of their choosing. I've been told that leaving a monument, is in most places, considered abandonment of private property, which allows it's removal. ” Here's a picture I took along the AT in Maryland between Ed Garvey Shelter and Gathland State Park:appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…4c1322f66b508fa6f95c29518 ” Glad you posted this.

    Chief, I would probably assume the same thing. I will try to choose my words more carefully in future posts.

    Quote from chief: “Love Hiking seems to mention a certain pay website with every post. Could this be nothing more than SPAM? ” No intent to spam. Just felt the responders to my post deserved the courtesy of a reply. I am not known for good choice of words. I have edited my post to remove as many references to the website as possible. Please let me know if further editing is needed.

    LIhikers, you are correct. “Leave nothing behind” applies to any object used to mark the location of the ashes. That is why a website like ancestordirectory.com is the perfect solution. It provides a “forever” ashes location that makes everyone happy.

    Quote from Drybones: “The Odum Trail, which makes a connector between the Pinhoti and Cave Creek trails to form a loop hike, has a marking cross with the name Joseph Scott .....cant remember the last name....on top of the mountain, I always stop there to pay my respects, didn't know Joseph but I know he had a good life, he had friends who liked him enough to climb the mountain and place his remains in a great place, it's normally winter when I'm there and the air is crisp and the wind is howling…

    Quote from max.patch: “kennesaw mountain national battlefield park faq: My loved one has passed and wanted their ashes spread at Kennesaw Mountain. Is this allowed? No. We are a battlefield not a final resting place. This directly violates our enabling legislation. weddings and similar events are also prohibited. 4,000 casualties (3,000 union and 1,000 confederate) during the battle. ” How true. Like I said most parks allow ashes, but not all. Always check first.

    Quote from odd man out: “That is very nice. However I was wondering. There are a lot of places that prohibit the scattering of ashes. I wonder if this site has any restrictions on posting locations where this might violate some rule, or if posting such a location might get someone in trouble. Not that I care. I think that these rules are much ado about nothing. I think if I were do to something like this, I might also consider marking the spot with a lasting monument that would follow the spirit…

    I love hiking and being outdoors. Several years ago, my best friend and I made a pact that our final hike would be to special place on the AT. He passed away last year and as agreed I scattered his ashes at our special hiking spot. Now his family members and friends want to visit the site to be close to him. So I give them a trail map marking the spot.Then it occurred to me that there has to be a more permanent way to record the location of a final hike. With a little research, I eventually foun…
