Sabotage! on the Ash Canyon Trails

Be Alert! Someone has sabotaged the trails in Ash Canyon by digging deep holes in the middle of the trail. The holes are located in high speed sections or in places where you wouldn’t see them until too late. Hitting one of these holes at speed would cause serious injury or even death! We weren’t able to repair them at lunch, but tried to block off the trail with downed brush. We’ll get trail crews up there ASAP to repair the damage. Until this issue is resolved, it is advisable to ride up any trail first at a slow speed before bombing back down it. The four holes we discovered were on the lower trails just west of the V&T bike path (Jackrabbit and Postal Route). No holes were found higher up, but this could change at any time.

  1. Absolutely unbelievable someone would consider something like this as ‘okay’. Completely sociopathic behavior.

  2. The trail was fixed quickly yesterday by Muscle Powered member Jeff Resler! Additionally, Parks and Recreation and the College showed their concern by offering their services. What a great community we have here!
