Except.... Generally speaking, the process to permit and approve a trail in BC, on Crown land, really isn't that hard. Especially compared to the rest of the world. Example: wanna build a trail near the coast in California? That's gonna require a full EIS, which can be 100-200 pages. Which are expensive, and time consuming. One of the biggest hurdles here (again, on Crown land) is the understaffed divisions of FLNRO tasked with this, so it can take a while. Its not that the process is particularly difficult or onerous. The 'entrenched old thinking' is "imma go build whatever I want, wherever I want, for me and a couple of friends".
