I just want to say, fuck these assholes who think they need to "improve" trail signage. Besides waiting along the trail to ambush them with a dull hatchet, what can be done? I'm tracking this asshole down though, I know the area he lives in already, just a matter of time. /rant

We have someone new (likely a MTBer) on the trails who keeps removing rocks from hard spots, turning them into flowy POS. If I catch him, I am gonna remove his rocks.

Same issues here in Dallas. Riders/hikers on multiple trails removing rocks, cutting out roots, creating shortcuts around obstacles. Not sure if there's anything we can really do legally if they're caught...

Dumbing down trails is one of the dumbest things people can do. Seriously, if an obstacle or section is too hard then get off the bike and walk. I do it all the time. There's been several examples that I can personally attest to where people have take it upon themselves to remove log and rock obstacles from some of my favorite trails. Its a rude awakening to encounter the damage, to say the least.

The dude has terrible grammar so it took me awhile to grasp what's going on here. Swing away if you see the idiot.

How do you "burn yours trail"? Flamethrower, napalm……?

When I was a kid, I think I would have Tonka Trucked on some trails. Only place I could play with them was in the sand box.

We have had a lot of rock removal and cheat lines crop up since June. More than in a typical season. Also, sad seeing where riders on a black diamond trail go around a rock that is as wide as the trail was cut, 1" high on the uphill side, and 3" high on the downhill side.
