Trail sabotage taking place massive tree trunk placed chocked with boulders- clearly human placed - 28 APR 20. Cleaned up twice on the same day. STAY SAFE. The debris were placed on the exit of one of the corners. This is the third occurrence that I’ve personally encountered this month.

Although it says both directions, for enjoyment and safety, only do it in the SW to NE direction.
