Parking for new NP TH

Does anyone know if a good, secure trailhead parking location has been established at the new southern end of the NP? I would like to do the trail again, but don't want to leave a car at a TH for 14 days.

In Upper Benson there are the "Benson Light & Power" folks who would let you park for $1.00/day; pretty cheap and very secure. Has any trail angel stepped forward to let you park in their yard or in front of their house yet?

There is a large established parking area at the end of the short dirt road off Collins Gifford Valley Rd. There are a few houses along CGV Rd in the area, and it might not hurt to stop and ask if you could park on their property if you'd rather not leave your vehicle unattented in the offical parking area for 14 days.

Oh, btw, I noticed a few weeks ago that the donation box at the house in Upper Benson is no longer there.
