    If 80,000 hikers account for 6% of the usage, that would mean that total projected usage is about 1.3 million. I doubt that is correct.

    I used to trace over the trails I hiked with a red pen when I started hiking in the 60s. Thankfully, the thought of hiking trails just to trace them out in red never occurred to me.

    That is why winter loops, particularly above treeline, are not recommended. Can't remember which specific AMC publication or article I read this in, but it is sound advice.
