Still from YouTube

One hiker is now calling for change after attempting to go for a hike in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park near Pemberton this past weekend.

He took a video and posted it to YouTube, showing hundreds of cars lined up along the side of the road, outside the park.

The video has now been viewed more than 14,000 times and the hiker says he is going to send it to Ministry of Transportation.

At one point in the video, crews can be seen towing a truck out of a ditch into the oncoming traffic lane.

Global News will be reaching out to the ministry for comment.
