Three Sisters, Willamette National Forest

Wilderness Permits, Oregon.

Why are wilderness users expected to fill out registration cards at every trailhead and have them ready to present on demand to patrolling forest service staff? I asked Tracy Beck, Forest Supervisor on the Willamette National Forest and received a detailed reply.

Summary

Received a response that responded directly to each question posed.  However, no historical data or previous report compiled from this data was provided in response to our request.

Followup

It would be very interesting to have the opportunity to review reports or data compiled from this registration process.
