The regs have been formulated as necessary over time due to past human abuses, to today environmentally protect what we have, while allowing the best possible experience by human visitors. There are reasons for each regulation, most are for the most part meant to preserve the land and waters for future visitors.

Want to wreck it? Just allow huge unregulated groups to come in to do whatever they want at any time with little knowledge or regard to what works and what does not.
Agree 100% with this. I'm currently planning a 10-day trip to Yellowstone and SW Montana - it's a whole different ballgame and Yellowstone is remote to begin with. The Adirondacks are within a 6-hr drive of 1/4 the population of North America.
