    Of the dozens of ski areas I've hiked, Cannon takes the cake most equipment-caused erosion.

    With regard to Wildcat, I wouldn't expect any major construction this year, as the owner (Vail)...

    There is a significant risk to our hiking trails with the current situation.

    WMNF hiking trails are only designed to have a corridor 3 to 4 feet wide and a footbed closer to 1.5 feet wide.

    While I'm glad they're reversing their decision (for the most part?), I think these announcements will have a worse effect than if they had just left things alone.

    It will get enough headlines...

    I don't think this is an optimal solution.

    I think the existing parking lot should be expanded (there is room on the northbound side), in conjunction with rebuilding the Old Bridle Path/upper...

    Don't give the parasitic postholers any ideas! Not much was broken out after the big snow storm, so snowshoes will still be very much needed.

    It seems like the grasping of straws to try to blame that event with the shut down. Park Service law enforcement, as well as Forest Service law enforcement, is not furloughed.

    Yes, I believe starting last year. It was plowed after the November and December storms this "fall."


    The section they provided train service to in the past was groomed and even had snowmaking....

    The concern is not the vast majority of law abiding hunters. The concern is not getting shot by those breaking the laws. I still remember hiking the Eagle Mountain Path in Jackson years ago and...

    The WMNF wilderness blazing restrictions are over the top.

    I don't agree with the decision. Further, I don't agree with the premise that the historic bridge could be removed, yet logging remains that are only a relative few years older must be preserved,...

    Cannon' also posted a hiking is prohibited sign when they first opened the trail.

    On one hand, they're telling people not to park or hike from over-crowded trailheads. On the other hand, they're...

    Considering the weather at points immediately to the south, I wouldn't consider Sunday's crowds indicative of change.

    The general fund contribution is likely negative, as there are expenses recognized in other departments that are actually incurred by the parks.

    The parks are supposedly self-funded on an O&M basis, but not on a capital basis. The...
