Paying Cash for Parking at Wilsky Blvd Trailhead

For years, the only option at this trailhead was to pay cash. The procedure was to (1) take an envelope from the bulletin board, (2) rip it into two pieces: the envelope for cash and the receipt portion, (3) put $2 into the envelope and insert it into the stainless steel column, (4) put the receipt on your car dash to prove that you paid.

But recently electronic pay stations were installed. These machines take paper money or credit cards BUT DO NOT GIVE CHANGE. And does not accept coins! The ticket below (exactly 4" X 2 1/4") is an example of what is dispensed after paying. You must place the ticket on the dashboard or risk paying a $30 fine.
