comment From an outdoor recreation point of view, does it matter who manages a national monument?
As for preservation and native people; I know that in Canada they established National park and preserve for a protected area where aboriginal people retain grandfathered "natural" rights. But that's relatively recent, and I don't know if the USA has something equivalent (would be a different question and maybe not a great fit on Outdoors.SE).

Do you have any sources that confirm this?

Is it different from safety from polar bears in the Arctic?

comment How to carry a bicycle in a canoe?
Not a canoe, but: (1), (2), (3). I've been considering the opposite; going on a grand cycling tour while bringing a packraft to cross rivers, lakes, and fjords (and therefore allow cycling on roads with a lot less cars around).

This question might fit better at Earth Science Stack Exchange.

comment Lodging while hiking the European E-paths
Unless it changed dramatically recently, huts are often really cheap. I paid less than 10 €/night in Bavaria in June 2009.

comment Measuring actual distance walked on a map (Allowing for changes in height)
My personal experience is that a handheld GPS device estimate on vertical elevation travelled is not accurate. Even when travelling on perfectly flat it will claim significant incline due to measurement uncertainty and pressure variations, and there's no way to distinguish that from actual elevation changes.
