What’s this truck doing on Antoine Peak?

COUNTY PARKS -- A hiker sent in this photo of a pickup stuck on Antoine Peak, the Conservation Futures area above East Valley High School.

The mountain is managed by Spokane County Parks. No unauthorized motorized vehicle access is allowed.

My question to the hiker:

I wonder if this is another example of the sad way maintenenace workers leave ruts in the access road as they maintain the radio towers on top of the peak, or whether it's another case of vandals disregarding the "No Motor Vehicles" signs and locked gates.

His answer:

Not unless Busch Light cans tossed about are part of "maintenance." Already sent the ranger an email with this shot & a couple others.
