My turn for a rant about the Parks day pass.
If you get a pass, your experience will be good. It for sure has cut down the numbers but it has not achieved their goal.
What I believe has happened is that for a trail with a capacity in their system (lets say for example 400 for PM on Black mountain) results in a 400 slots being taken, and 75% of those being no shows, so the amount of people they felt the trail could sustain isn't even being met and those that did not get a pass unnecessarily go somewhere else. However that is not my worst observation.
The people checking our ticket were not Parks people but (I think) Cypress bowl employees. 2 young women arriving at 530pm with sneakers ahead of us asked where they could get water (not to fill a bottle, they needed the bottle too). Between them, they had 1 pink leather backpack smaller than my small first aid kit.
They were let in, and then asked: "Which way is the Howe Sound Crest Trail?".
I'm sure they were just going to the nearest lookout along it,.. right? Maybe Bowen lookout?
We will never know,.. the person that pointed them to the water and trailhead didn't ask a single follow-up question. Are you going to Deek's lake? Do you have any gear? It was a missed opportunity and screw how much SAR will be chasing people elsewhere, they might have their hands full here!
I feel that the person checking the tickets gives a false sense of safety for the area, they missed an opportunity to educate, and did not solve the main issue at all,.. but our trails was nice and quiet.. ... See MoreSee Less
