So is an article like this in the NY Times a good thing, or not?
That depends on who you ask.  This topic is very controversial.
It will just bring the masses in

The more people we get out into the woods to experience nature, the better. People have to know what we're losing every day:

Also, I once got a helicopter to pick me up from a hike in New Zealand and it was awesome. If we on this forum are a group of people who have heli-skiing on our bucket lists, it seems a bit hypocritical to complain about float plane-accessed wilderness trips.

Good point. I agree. Seems like a good way to get some people away from the more highly impacted areas too.

You can get in there without a plane

I've hiked half of the Northville Lake Placid trail. Someday I hope to do the other half, but who knows.

It's a beautiful part of the Dacks --- very remote
