    Yeah, it is becoming common that these traps are being set up on trails all across the country. I know the Front Range has seen a lot of this BS lately and I hoped GJ was far enough away and so established as a bikers paradise that it wouldn't become a problem here.

    This has been discussed on the FB feeds: Colorado Western Slope Trail Conditions, COPMOBA - GVC, Colorado Backcountry Biker. If you can, look at those and the discussions that follow in them. Based on the comments on CBB, it looks like it is not a trap. It's pretty certain that the trail is not a marked trail - I don't recognize it as any part of any of the marked trails at 18rd. Furthermore it might actually be part of a grazing fence, although no-one from the BLM has yet commented on these posts to verify this.

    Yup, sounds like folks off riding cow trails in the desert and then crying wolf when they run into something. I found it interesting that nobody initially wanted to cop to WHERE this supposed trap was and let everyone believe it was somewhere in the main 18rd trails for at least a few days. If you're gonna make a claim like this you better be ready to give details.

    From the thread.....

    >> Not a marked trail and its right next to a wellhead about 3miles west of the 18rd trailhead on cow trail

    >>>Well actually it's a electric fence that the BLM put up for grazing management purposes! See the unmarked trail you are riding your bike on is actually a cow trail. Ranchers pay money to use that government land to run their cattle on during the winter!!
