Any suggestions for one hiker-a 60 year old b**ch who likes to put rocks in the middle of the trail. This is a public trail system with about 12 XC bikers who use and a few hikers. Everything has been great the past 10 years and now this lady believes cyclists should not be using it, I quess. I almost punched her the other day after our first meeting. Any suggestions????

If it's public land, let the authorities know. Any trail modifications have to go through some process. If you can convince someone that there is malicious intent, there could be criminal charges as well.

Piano wire across a couple of trees. Give her a taste of her own medicine.

Oh, make sure you warn the other 11 bikers not to ride that day.

Tiger trap.

You could also take the big rocks, pile them and make some jumps.

Seriously, how big of a rock can a 60-year old woman move? My Mom's capacity tops out at about 40 pounds, which is not a particularly big rock...

Polite confrontation is the way to go. If that doesn't work, thank her for building the technical terrain features.

Rocks on trails? In Austin, our trails are rocks.

Seriously though, I'd take it through the authorities. Parks and Rec, City of XX, etc.

fake rocks attached to anti-personnel mines? That should do the trick.

Proper order
jump em-->modify into jumps-->polite confrontation-->bribe with sex-->contact trail authorities-->KA-BOOM!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry, I should try and help.
get as many of your friends to go with you to confront her.
this is the most important part. stay calm. keep your friends calm.
bring a vidio camera and document the rocks and you confronting her. then inform her that if she doesn't stop you'll go to the authorities.

ok, fine, anti-personnel mines are probably a bad idea...


You leave too much evidence.

Fake rocks made of metal attached to several car batteries.
Then you just have to put her body in her bathtub with a toaster. Problem solved.





I kid, I kid.

Next time you see her moving rocks, offer a hand and add more rocks. Turn it into a feature and thank her for the help.
If she sees that it's benefiting you, then she will stop.

no wait, I've got it. SPRING LOADED ROCKS.
Move 'em and they nail you in the face. That'll teach her a lesson without killing her, for you bleeding heart anti-murder sissies.


Or you could just do what pop martin or the one1 says, but who wants to be rational and reasonable?

exactly :)
every trail needs a good rock garden anyways.

Seriously though, local authorities, ranger, DNR etc should be informed.

We cannot help you without pictures of both the rocks and the old woman. If you could get her to pose on said rocks then you would only have to upload one picture. Either way we do not have enough information to provide a solution to your problem.
