Sad.

This looks like the parking lot near Silvermine. Last time I parked here I must have counted 40-50 vehicles. My buddy Brad and I do trail cleanup here two or three times a year, the last occasion being right after labor day '05. We emerged with four huge bags full of trash and debris. Needless to say, I was quite angry with how careless many of the hikers are.

Lot.

It was pretty clean the day I was there. I didn't notice any trash.

One thing that I did notice was that the meadow below Sam's Knob was full of campers the day I headed out to Middle Prong, but completely vacant when I returned the following day (a weekday).

Re: Lot.

This was right after a holiday weekend and the trash was mostly from unclean campsites a little off the trail..you should have seen the beer cans.
