Wednesday night my wife and I went to ride GB from the Cavitt School parking lot. The trail that winds behind the school was blocked by 2 padlocked gates. We were able to lift our bikes over the 7 foot chain link fence by standing on a picnic table and passing them over to another rider. Then we climibed the fence. This was about 5 p.m. When we returned about 1.5 hours later, lights on, the parking lot was dark and there was a Placer County deputy with dog (deputy dog?) hiding in the parking lot. The gates were still locked. They did not approach us, nor we him. For as long as I can remember, trail users have been allowed to park at this school and go through their grounds to reach the lake from 4 p.m. on. Did anyone ride last night who can report on the status of the gates? Has anyone heard what is going on?
I hope this was a fluke... :confused:

yea sounds like vanadalism and an escape route to me too

the other thing is maybe people are using those gates to run quads, dirtbikes, 4x4s, whatever into the park?

I live right down the street from Cavitt and I ride the trails all the time. I've encountered the locked gates on a few occasions. I just attributed it to the custodian forgetting or being off for the day.

FWIW, you can ride around the gates by going on the west end of the baseball field on the opposite side of the chainlink fence. There's some blackberry bushes, but it is rideable.

And if that prospect doesn't sound appealing, you can always ride up Douglas Blvd. and catch the trail at the Granite Bay boat launch. Just take the quick right drop off just before the main gate.
