The parks set their own rules in a way and just get around the laws. Most likely because they have paid crews and they know you wont get any production following the wilderness act.

The rest of us trail workers only get exceptions to the law in extreme circumstances that normally involve an object obstructing the trail that is an extreme hazard and the only reasonable way to remove it is with power tools. Even then it often takes a year or many in order to get the permission

I belong to a trail crew operating in Dinkey Wilderness - they don't have to work that hard to get the exception permit.

Yeah, I hear you. But this guy -- and he didn't look even remotely disabled -- appeared to be doing quite well. There were some pretty rocky sections on the trail and I wonder how he did on those. I'm guessing with that big wheel he did okay.

Maybe he had some sort of spinal issue. When I asked him about the wheel he just said a ranger told him it was okay, not that it was okay for someone disabled.

Whatever. Horses, wheels, iPods, drones. 38 million people.

The Dixon pack is somewhat of a traditional backpack with a wheel. It has a regular pack suspension and the wheel will fold up out of the way for "for pretty rocky sections" etc.
