reporter More funny business on Skull? There was a branch across the final rock roll around 9 pm last night, which appeared to be placed. Keep an eye on it.

 This trail has been seeing some blocking by a disgruntled hiker. This seems to be happening on Friday mornings. If people see the trail blocked, please clear it and post here the DATE you unblocked it.
