Parked here for an ascent of Algonquin in Feb.'07 , I don't mind paying the parking fee, as long as it's going to conservation.
The park rangers were nice to a degree. But just before we started on the trail. A woman park ranger stopped us and asked us in a rude tone where we were going. After telling her we were going to hike. She tried to stop us because of rain that was going to be falling later in the day. We laughed in her face and walked off.
