    Couldn’t DEC install signs on all trails AT THE 4000′ MARK stating “No camping BEYOND THIS POINT May – December 15”?? Otherwise, people can simply say “I didn’t know I was above 4000 feet”. (If someone is found camping in a col under 4000′ they would be OK.) At least proper signage would eliminate the “ignorance” defense. But without enough Rangers to patrol effectively, regulations are meaningless.

    This is all bullshit….there used to be magnificant leanto’s at little marcy, haystack, Indian falls on the gothics trail until the year the pigs left a couple of tons of litter for volunteers to pack out from Indian falls…..welcome to socialism now we are all punished because the dec will not enforce the carry it out rule…..ask yourself what really changes in the dainty alpine environment after dec 14 to render it ok to camp higher then….???

    Just tell the truth…don’t wrap everything in the environment because it diminishes the justification….
    Just tell us the truth

    Several feet of snow and ice, not to mention fewer potential campers.
