Oh look, a dog-rant thread that I didn't start rant.gif Those things that people are suggesting would be nice, but they won't happen because they increased fixed costs instead of just being one-time capital expenses. As I mentioned, they already don't have enough money to maintain the infrastructure that they have, so all they can do is build more capital projects and pretend there won't be fixed costs associated. On top of that, the WTA, whom I understand gets paid to do some trail maintenance that they have volunteers actually do, has a hard time getting volunteers to work on more difficult/less accessible trails. This is why Poo Poo Point is absurdly over-maintained (Hey, let's add some switchbacks to those switchbacks!) while other trails get very little attention. As-is there is too much focus on biggering and not nearly enough on bettering, which in my opinion includes diversity of experience and access to solitude.

If not now, when?

The reason Tent City is part of this conversation is that they have moved back and forth from Highpoint to the church several times but clearly prefer High Point and stay there for long periods. The project as described will displace them permanently.
The tent city has been been relocated and not coming back to this location, and is not part of DNRs plan for this trail head then. That's how I understand it.
