He has a great playlist, you'll get hooked.

A big pile of debris with tape at either end is way better than what is being done.

Even knowing what might be there I still rode into it a breathtaking speed, at night,

and only with grace, style and incredible skill was I able to ride it out.........

True story.

Other rides have commented on this and stop to clear the trail as well but this keeps getting done.
Stop before someone gets hurt!

Firstly, the section in question was dealt with by us at PACA. If you had ridden by there any time from February to July, you would have seen an ever expanding pit as riders were continually trying to avoid the mud.
You keep mentioning 25 year old trail and yes, it has lasted the test of time, but 25 years ago there was a 1/10 of the traffic, the speeds were way lower and water flow paths have changed with uphill erosion. Not to mention that we were in rain forest like conditions all year.
Our duty as trail stewards under the management of Rec Sites and Trails BC is to maintain the trails and prevent ecological damage. The massively increasing popularity of the Mice requires legitimizing the trails to certain standard levels and we no longer have the free reign to carry on as it was for the last 25 years. We have an advocate and security of the government, but lost some freedom.

Was large debris the appropriate thing to have on the trail? No. When we did the work, we properly reclaimed by churning the soil and covering with small debris (grasses and twigs). After SAR came through this summer with 6 quads, it packed it down into a trail again and I guess we assumed people had gotten the message after 4 months that the reroute was properly in play. We are in the process of getting proper "Trail Features Have Changed" signage for future trail updates.

As I said in my initial post, the trail WASdecommissioned properly but has since been resurrected by traffic of SARs/riders.
Riders looking to help have unfortunately put large obstacles as a way of deterring usage of the old line.

RST fork and a 140mm stem. At least he has pads on for when his stem buckles and stoves into his undampened fork.
