This is on a hiking trail on Mt Pisgah NC, a federal park.

Greg, what does that supply?
Nothing "mission-critical" I hope. crazy

If that is UF, it looks to me like garden lighting cable, I'd never run that to any building.

I hope you let the park rangers know. That could get somebody killed.

That was going to lighting along the edge of the trail and it looked like 120v to me. I did talk to the ranger but I got a blank stare. They seemed more interested that it was a trip hazard.
