I agree regarding hiker education. I agree that people willfully risk their lives. You've also mentioned how some people don't want to heed warning.
We shall continue to do so as we have done on this group for years.
That being said, trail improvements can't hurt, and petitioning the FS can't either.
Does anyone know of a trail maintenance volunteer crew? Who maintains the MWMT? I'd be willing to drive up and give some work days next season to help.
