This came up in a heated Christmas dinner debate between some experienced North Shore trail users and some people newer to the area. The end result: 1) Parking Lots (Fromme, Lynn Headwaters, Mushroom) need to clearly list alternative parking places. Lots of people (new day hikers) apparently don't know about less apparent lots and spaces. 2) Routing. Newer trail users don't know about the different access routes to trails, viewpoints, attractions, etc. They do their due diligence planning a hike, printing a map, etc. However they're understandably uncomfortable starting from a point different to their plan. The Google search result for most popular routes reinforces stress on certain parking areas.  So, maps at lots and clearly marked alternative lots should help distribute use, maybe?
