I just hiked wedgemount last week (Tuesday). I haven't done that slog up in some years but i had heard the TH and lower portion of the trail were relocated, so i was a little more attentive than usual when heading up the road. There are are signs at several key points indicating the direction to the new TH. However, these signs and the fonts used are quite small and easy enough to miss. Just remember you are at the TH when you arrive at the obvious parking lot with the BC Parks map/sign and reasonably new outhouse.
All good from there, other than the trail itself is getting a lot of use and erosion around tree roots is way more pronounced than i recall. Some upgrade work may be in the offing if this area keeps attracting so many hikers. Parking lot was packed full when i got back down at 3:00 pm. RCMP were in the parking lot investigating a possible SAR issue (which did not materialize as far as i know). Had a chat with the officer about car breakins at trailheads.
