If you would like to help clear recently fallen trees at North Park, please meet Don Schmitt at the North Park Administration Building at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Wed) July 7.
Additionally, recently several tree roots and smaller, long-standing, logs have been cut, damaged, and/or removed. There is no way of identifying who is doing this short of catching the actor, however, PTAG's NP stewardship team has received several recent complaints from local riders about this problem. Hopefully, it is no one in the biking community. In one instance, someone actually took the time to cut a U-shaped section out of a half-buried, 4-inch diameter tree root, presumably to flatten the trail along North Ridge.
Everyone very much appreciates the time that trail users spend clearing trails, however, this behavior is simply unacceptable. PTAG is trying its best not to be the heavy, but rather to provide fun trails for everyone's enjoyment, but altering the trails and damaging flora without prior approval is a criminal offense subject to fine and suspension of park privileges. More importantly though, the trails belong to everyone, so please consider this before cutting tree roots and removing long-standing TTFs.
Thank you for your continued support.
