Rode the CCW loop at Redwood Park (East Bay / Oakland hills) tonight, and just a few dozen meters past the bottom of the the steepest descent, there's a low hanging limb. One can ride under it if you see it in time and stay left, but someone riding there at night could take their head off on it if they were to fly through there at normal speed.

Proceed with caution folks & spread the word.

Multiple Trees Blocking Loop

Rode Up There Last Thursday And There Was 3-4 Different Locations Where Tree Branches Were Broken Off And Blocking Trail. It Appeared Deliberately Placed. One Was Right After First Turn After Skyline Gate From East Ridge To West Ridge That We Had To Dismount To Get By. Rider In Front Of Us Looked Like He Almost Bailed Trying To Avoid It. We Usually Start Up Canyon Meadow To East Ridge To West Ridge And Back.

This one was on West Ridge trail, just a few hundred feet up from the creek. Was going to ride that loop today, but settled on doubling up loops in JMP instead. Hope it's gone, and that no one lost their dome. Curmy, it spanned the entire trail width (which unfortunately says a lot), and was a good 6" in diameter. Though I only saw it long enough to duck under it, my impression was that it fell naturally; had no reason to think it'd been placed there intentionally.

I was responding to br8kmywindo assertions. I hope we are not getting yet another lunatic booby trapping trails.

Ah, got it. Duh.

I didn't see piles of sticks anywhere in Redwood last Friday, but there were big piles in Juaquin Miller yesterday. I'm used to seeing down branches there, but in hindsight, they did seem to be limited to fairly dense piles. I'll keep my eyes open for this a bit more next time I'm up that way. I too hope the assertions are false.
