       Still fenced off by the home owner adjacent to the trail. Talked to the rangers, they said it’s not private property. Guess the guys been a jerk about it. Ride at your own risk. Oh well.

       Still fenced off, the fence has fence been extended to further discourage access. Once through the fence the trail is filled with cut branches, and tree limbs. I’ve even been harassed when on trail. Sent an email to star park superintendent months ago; never heard anything in response.
