    A bit like the people here who spray painted No Dog Shit all over on a trail.
    I guess he thinks you might not see where that clear trail is going?

    Is it known who it is or would a game camera help in identification?

    I would also add the constant cairn building on extremely obvious paths. I know kids are just having fun on the top of a hill, so I leave those, but every 20 feet on a popular trail just off the road? At least they’re easy to knock down and spread the rocks. Paint? WTF?

    We had a rogue painter on our trails in DSM. I believe it was tracked down to a small running group trying to highlight the roots for their night runs. The trail group has good outreach to the running groups and I think they got it stopped.

    Yeah, idk. The area has become quite popular so a game cam would constantly record. We just cannot believe no one has seen him in action. It's in my hometown and I've built 90% of the trails, so I know most of the local riders, so by default "we" know all the locals and between all of us nobody knows who it is. He might be a trail runner is our thoughts.

    There were a few rounds of scrubbing the paint just so it would reappear soon after. Then he decided to chip the name of the walls and arrows in big old blocks on the side of the trail. Those were flipped with great effort to hide the stuff. He eventually moved on to other idiotic pursuits.

    Marking the approach trails to climbing areas is good, otherwise you get multiple trails going to the same spot, which is destructive.

    Unless you're in LCC, you can see every buttress from the road, and the approach trails have been established in the 70s and walked by 100s of 1000s of climbers over the years. You can't get lost in that canyon. And the directions were added to the most popular and most road-side crags, not the obscure stuff.

    i started several years ago i'm a heavy guy at 275lbs so with the bike i'm around 310lbs going up the 1500 ft is not fun at all, not getting into electric since it will defeat the purpose.

    Agree. And if it makes you go more often and not "dread" the workout asskick of initial biking then it's a win.

    I'm the first one to heckle ebikes, but they can be a gateway to fitness for people starting and out of shape, if used regularly and just as an assist, not as a shuttle. A guy I regularly ride with in his mid 50s rode one for the first year he restarted riding, then switched to a regular bike after he had enough stamina to do 3k days on his own. Then when he started working from home this year, he bumped things up to 2 rides a day (morning / evening), one each on ebike and regular bike. He's doing great, let alone for someone in his 50s.

    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    Hahahaha. At 47, makes me feel like I'm knocking on heavens door!
    My biggest problems are a chronic inability to turn, and injuries.

    How the fuck does one manual? People just be rolling down the trail on their back wheel like it ain't no thing..... And here I am getting my front tire 4" off the ground or looping out at speed and wrecking myself. There is no in between.
