    These aren't even cheater lines...

    More bonehead moves on the trail. People created this line to avoid a few small bumps in the trail that was once singletrack, now the trail is about 3’ wide in this section. As you are looking at the photo, the darker (Gray-ish) area of the trail is T100 and it is down to bedrock (as it has been since the 90’s according to the hiker I was talking to) and the lighter tan line is the new ‘’fast’’ line. People doing this stuff have no respect for the other users or the trail system at all. This doesn’t even make sense, over time this line will wear down to bedrock also, leaving a 3’ wide bumpy bed rock trail and there will be no net gain. Thankfully, someone shut this one down and a few others. Someone also made a line around the inside of the T100 pole as you are going down hill towards SR51.

    Join the growing singletrack movement and shut down alternate lines whenever you see them!

    Been up by the Christmas tree recently. Someone blocked of the line heading North on 220. Created a new line for 30 feet of trail. I am not expert on this stuff, but this new line looks like it will not wear well! Big rock in 1a going east of VOAZ is gone. Seems like someone is doing a lot of so called maintenance. I have yet to see a trail crew out there in the 6 years of riding that area.

    They're just Doctoring the Trails the other users won't. You want everybody to have a positive user experience, don't you?

    ^^ My best guess also. Probably started as an 'only option' when stuck behind a soccer mom power walker with headphones in and ended up a cheater-line.
