 Marin is good at building booby traps for bikers. Those rich geriatrics hate two wheelers.

 People should be purchasing trail tools and then leaving them places in the woods, and doing their part, much better use of your money in marin co.

 OMG have you guys not got to ride octopus trail on Camino Alto soooo rad, said no-one ever!!! They take all the good sh%t away and give us trails that would bore my 3 year old on her scoot bike. RIP Kneecap!

 Trail Advocacy groups claimed that the decom of kneecap etc would lead to the legalization of several other trails.... still waiting on split rock to legalize.... Advocacy groups in Marin have been compromised and don't actually speak for the core of the user group.

 @Jsmoke: Compromised? As in infiltrated? That's a little too Deep State for me. If you think A4B doesn't represent core users, so be it. I don't think being a core user is mutually exclusive with trying to change things via formal means, though.

No group can represent everyone and there's plenty of riders out there that are happy to stash tools in the woods and carry on with no hope for change via the legal process. After the mtb community has been burned so many times by Marin, I get that stance. Absolutely no judgement.

But to say the delay in opening trails like Split Rock falls to A4B not following through, that's just off target. The time frame is strictly up to Parks, and in the case of Split Rock, also concerns MMWD. Also, A4B never said the loss of one trail would directly lead to the opening of another. Far from it. Getting any kind of quid pro quo out of land managers in Marin has always been an uphill battle. They have all the leverage. We can make proposals, they make decisions.

 Lots of valid frustration here — and that's exactly why A4B is trying to change the situation in Marin! If you look around at other communities that have turned around a long and strong opposition to mountain bike trail access, it didn't happen over night.

Trail advocacy in Marin is hard and often thankless. The alternative is being sarcastic and passive which have been turning things around since never.

You can always ride whatever you want whenever you want and take your chances. If the lawman was so omnipresent to completely shutdown all the good trails, then no one would even bother anymore. Yes, some good trails have been decommed. But let's be honest — trails built illegally usually have an expiration date. Not always, but often. Enjoy them, then move on.

 Talk about needing trails. We mtbers in Marin have some of the gnarliest fireroads around. You ever try bobcat fireroad in the headlands, that's straight up a triple black diomond.

 They should give away the Stumpjumper Evo, you need it to ride all the death defying gnar trails in Marin that previous bike legal efforts have given us, like 680 and Big Rock Trail.

 Win a bike you can’t ride anywhere near a single track trail in Marin. How depressing.
