Rogue Heart Break Ridge alterations
« on: January 10, 2009, 09:40:39 PM »
Talking with the ranger at Trout Creek today we were trying to figure who and why someone is taking out some of the roots on Heart Break Ridge.  It is posted as a "Very Difficult Trail" and if the person altering the trail simply cannot ride this type of trail then he/she should ride something else.  It's not like other options are not available.  I'd hate to think it is someone trying to "smooth" it out prior to the Squiggly Race.  It is recognized that erosion and hog damage has altered the trail and there will be some fixes towards that, but not to the point of dumbing it down.  I think everyone's consensus is it should remain a very difficult trail; a trail to gain bike handling skills on.

If anyone knows who is doing it, or see's them doing it, lets find a way to get them to stop!  People making alterations to a trail on their own is not the way to get something fixed.

Not calling anyone out.  Just saying if there is knowledge of it lets find a way to stop it.  The rangers are prepared to take action when the person is caught damaging or altering the trails.

Thanks for any help.
Garry

and 3 more since i posted that, lol.
wow, a slashing (of a bike tire) of someone who's jacking up the threads is smited, lmao. (not like i'd pull out my knife and actually DO IT, but they'd deserve it for messing up what others have worked so hard to build and maintain)

no no no,, be nice to those who alter, but smite those that would want to do something about it

You may have been lulled into a sense of security, just before getting bashed with multiple smites.....
