Hi Sanesh, yes - didn't mean to argue with your point. Definitely, there should be an indication of available parking alternatives for when the lot is full.  My problem is that the alternate parking options are truly useless for the majority of people that actually **need** the parking lot to begin with.  . On a bike (and with the basic fitness required to get to Bobsled) and adult mountain biker can park down at Coleman and ride back up to the parking lot. So sure, mark that as an option. Braemar is another story altogether as significantly more advanced fitness and skill on a bike is required to access the trail network from that point.  Hiking wise - and I've experienced this first hand - trying to access the easiest hiking trails on Fromme from any legal parking spot that isn't the parking lot is essentially impossible with very small children and less-abled people. It's an artificial problem that the DNV has created and can easily rescind but likely never will in a standard case of spine vs. NIMBY (I'd love to be surprised).
