New Rules announced for NC National Forests

On Thursday of this week the USDA Forest Service for National Forests in North Carolina announced new rules that will impact the Nantahala, Pisgah, Croatan and Uwharrie National Forests.

Oddly, it states that the rules went into effect this past April, but are scheduled to be in place until April of 2015.

The first new rule states that it's now illegal to store geocaching equipment, or any equipment not being used in conjunction with a current visit, in any NC National Forest without a permit.

The second new rule states that use or possesion of any type of metal detector is prohibited in NC National Forests.
