The National Park Service has banned drones from flying over the Appalachian Trail. Parks were directed in June to take steps to prohibit the use of the increasingly popular aircraft, which are often used to take photos and videos.

The Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Maine to Georgia, is the longest marked trail in the country.
