We could learn a lot from the Swedes:

Their right to roam balances rights and responsibilities, and means that, generally, it's pretty tidy over there with friendly relationships between landowners and those using the outdoors.

Paying $15 makes me a customer - people behave differently when they think they are a customer. Often expectations rise out of all proportion to the fee, and I'll be expecting some of that about $375,000 per annum to be invested in facilities. Bet there will be more litter too, because now people will think someone is being paid to pick up after them.

Fair play to charge I say. My favourite part of the track (well, one of them) is that part that dips and loops through that little picturesque farm. Must take a lot to keep that place looking pretty for the tourists.

I think it is fair enough given it uses private land as there are is inconvience and cost (public liablity insurance in particular) that the landowner needs to cover.
