Please provide clarification about broken links
<p>Good morning.</p> <p>Could you clarify what you mean by "the directional links would not work"?&nbsp; All of the hike, driving, and trailhead direction links appear to be working correctly, so we are unsure if you encountered an issue with the website itself, or if you had cell coverage connectivity issues at the park that made you unable to access the information on the website.</p> <p>For reference, we offer a "Print-friendly version" of each hike in the Let's Go section (next to the Google Map), and clicking on that will bring you to a page with all of the information you'll need while out on the hike.&nbsp; It is sometimes helpful to access that page before heading out in case you do encounter issues with cell coverage connectivity, which can be quite common at many parks in the region.</p>

Direction link broken
