 Can anyone comment on the No Trespassing / Private Property signs about 2/3 of the way up the trail? The signs are 'posted' on the back of official USFS signs. I read in a 4x4 forum that the road crosses private property briefly, and that as long as you stay on the road, there should be no issue. Other people claim being confronted by the land owner.

Anyone who rides this regularly care to comment?

 MoonDogg: Please be sure to post back if you find out anything. I was there 1 week after your post. Stopped at private property sign. A jogger came down and said, "the guy just waived at him." Personally felt odd about continuing on. I backtracked about 100 ft and took the other forest service road up that had some water running through it and was in rough shape. Looking at aerial map, looks like the private property can be bypassed eventually connecting back to Hawk Meadows Trail. That forest road fork (didn't write down the number) needs some work though and I did not see many other bike/foot tracks. Would be nice to just better develop the bypass and avoid that property IMO,

 So I decided to venture further up a few days ago. Once you get around the bend, there is a gate, with fence that extends some distance to either side of it. The road turns right and runs along this fence and heads north. There is some more no trespassing signs coming from the other side as well.

Logic says that if the road was technically the private property, it would be fenced. I assume the USFS has some kind of right of way for the road. I will continue to ride it until something or someone convinces me otherwise. I think he put the signs up hoping to discourage traffic on the road, but technically cannot stop it.

I do like taking the bypass, it's more challenging, but nice to have both options.
