The problem is the expectation of always meeting one's goals. Does one always summit Everest if one tries? In this day and age of instant gratification, we expect everything to be easy and attainable within the first try. Perhaps the added challenge is a welcome addition to some people. Perhaps that's what makes it more like real wilderness and more of a real adventure, instead of just sight-seeing. There are plenty of tame, canned experiences if you want that.

The trail is not what needs to change, it's the mindset.
