• We apologize for the somewhat convoluted sign-up process. Due to ever-more sophisticated attacks by chatbots, we had to increase our filtering in order to weed out AI while letting humans through. It's a nuisance, but a necessary one in order to keep the level of discourse on the forums authentic and useful. From the actual humans using WCP, thanks for your understanding!

Widgeon Creek and Falls, little known histories

Yes overuse can spoil an area but, here especially in the busy lower mainland, people will come anyway. Keeping the trails more rustic can help deter people and reduce pressure but an unmaintained trail can cause more damage as people go around swampy areas for instance. Providing bear caches is good though to avoid bear conflict and help mitigate the effects of overuse. The cache in your pic looks new but there have already been caches and tables there for years.
