    South Fork Rant

    South Fork is a really fun trail. Kinda lame someone built a ride around the rooty section after the bridge. It's okay to walk if you can't ride something, but people need to quit dumbing down our trails...

    The trail is trashed enough as it is.

    I would guess it wasn't an approved build. Lev is the trail steward and I'm thinking he wouldn't build a ride around. But, I could be wrong.

    Bummer! I am witnessing actions like this more and more. They are 2-3 side trails in place cutting around the rocks below the funner, storm king, twinks junction. Have tried closing them off but they continue to be ridden. This is a tough situation as there is very little that can be done as actions like this come down to the general trail code for the area.

    My gfriend just asked "what are you doing?" I explained the topic and she asked "why do people have to do that?" Bout sums it up.

    Hit the trails folks, the dirt is stellar!

    Rode SF yesterday and realize as i rode around that rooty tree section that they was that ride around now.

    MY guess it's if Strava weren't around, this new shortcut wouldn't be there. That rooty section really slows you down, hence the shortcut.

    Annoying.

    That "dumbed down" section has been there for two years; the debris placed there to discourage it keeps being removed.
