I rode up this trail on Thursday and found 5 separate attempts to make obstructions on the trail that appeared to me to be attempts to impede bikers, but not hikers.
There are small trees at the top and bottom that have been snapped up high to bend down and obstruct the trail on blind corners.
There were 3 spots were deadfall and trimmed limbs had been dragged onto the trail in an attempt to narrow a section. I cleared all these up, but did not have the tools needed to deal with the trees.
At first I thought these were just stuff that happens, but after the 3rd obstacle the pattern became clear to me.
I'd say the intent was benign, (i.e. the obstacles are meant to slow you down, but not hurt you and all were clearly visible.)
The only reason I bring this up is that the attempts may escalate as the obstacles are removed. The whole thing is kind of sad and pathetic. It's one of the two legal "single track" trails in the whole park and given the relatively low use of MTB's in the park, I would hope we could live and let live.
