"Biking is recommended" Cyclists will be forced to walk their bikes on the trail - too crowded! Also the roads leading out will be bumper to bumper with rude drivers, many cutting through bike lanes to get home.

Yes, cycling in is the best bet by far, unless you're close enough to walk in. Eventually you'll join up w/ the crowd and you can walk with them. Anyone driving must have a huge tolerance for crowds of rude impatient people.I simply won't taint an otherwise great day with all that stress.
