    Worst Trailmarker Ever (Ringwood Content)

    Does anyone know the person who thought it would be a good idea to staple styrofoam plates to trees as trailmarkers in Ringwood?

    I couldn't believe my eyes today.

    Anyone?

    thats a great idea better than carving in trees
    Save a tree & wipe your butt with an owl.
    Thank your local Sierra Club.

    I saw them yesterday, any idea what they were for? Was there a race there on Saturday? I konw the H2H isn't going to be there until October, but I remember they held a trail running race a couple years ago.

    My brother reported the same thing. There may have been an event going on. Always best to call the park office 973 692-2240 or 973 962-2244 to confirm before taking down.

    All event promoters are required to take down all markers within a day or two. So if you see markers still up after an event, you can ... #1 help out and take them down, #2 report to the park if you feel the rules have been abused.

    Thanks for your concern.

    Thanks Pixy,

    I put this post in the Passion Forum and basically got flamed. I didn't see any official sanctioned event there last weekend (and I rode both Saturday and Sunday.) so I assumed there was no official event happening. I will be heading out to Moab this weekend so I won't be able to check to see if they are still up. If they are still there in 2 weeks, I will be sure to carry them out with me..

    If the person who put it up is that clueless with which way a race course runs, they shouldn't be racing.
