It's trails-focused, but WTA said they'd share the survey with the partners (I assume DNR, USFS)

(I discussed overstuffed parking. I might take it again, because I forgot to discuss 3Fng, Higgins)

Takes about 10 minutes-ish.

Thanks! I discussed the scary people on the road up towards 3 fingers, not to mention the loss of that trail...and the toilet paper blooms/overuse of the Gothic Basin, Lake 22 and Vesper Peak trails.

Yeah, I whined about the loss of Hemple Creek Picnic Area as a picnic area. It's just a parking lot for Lake 22 now; people can't have a picnic there any longer. frown.gif

And the access to Ashland Lakes. Incredible old growth forest, but can't get there (most can't).

Similar comments from me. I emphasized loss of access / lack of trail maintenance to a few areas (Three Fingers, Bald Mountain trail) as factors that unsustainably concentrate users in the remaining locations.
