 Locked gate at main trailhead standard route  

Here are the legal notices that are posted at the trailhead described as the standard route. On the night before we started our hike we drove up to the trailhead to check out the situation. Several others were also checking it out and one person drove through the unlocked "locked gate." He came back just a little shocked after running into either the owner himself or a rather unfriendly "staff" person, who took lots of nice pictures of him, his truck and license plate. This person then took pictures of everybody else's licenses that happened to be at the trailhead, then mentioned that he was going to go "run" everybodys plates. Oh yeah, you can have legal access to the standard route if you visit the website on the notice and pay an "access fee." This "access fee" helps to cover the staffing fees, liability insurance costs and maintain the access road. The fee? $100.00 per person, non-refundable, day stated, absolutely no dogs. You can stay at the rock house for an additional fee and yes, they have DSL and phone at the mill for emergencies. The website is Our trip? Since we work for a living and were kind of sick to our stomachs at this point, we elected to go hike some other place the next day.
