Oh yeah - the amount of traffic and various levels of that traffic and conditions all are so damaging to terrain like tabletops.IMO/IME this always depends on what time of year you hit stuff like this. You get a little rain on a Thu/Fri right before a gorgeous weekend and by Monday shit is burned up. Sort of like hitting KT after that festival they have every year.
But I'm guessing. We were there Labor Day and everything seemed pretty crisp. Looked to me like they had put in some work at the end of the summer for sure. But I am a hack so take this for what it's worth.
