It seems like a good program to me, and I am sure they'll come up with something suitable for the new names. The old names will linger for a while on physical maps, but since so much is done...

The press release and webpage look nice. It's good to hear what the current status is, and the maps are helpful too.

Corey's Rd does look nice. I'll definitely want to try those trails, and poke around in the river.

I'm glad that it is a simple rule in Wilderness and Wild Forest areas, as I had vaguely thought that was the case and have been acting accordingly for a long while. I remember asking in 2012 or so...

I'm late to this discussion, but one way to deal with parking problems is to ride a bicycle. It's also fun, cheap(er), clean(ish), quiet, and good exercise.
