So true. It was one vid on social media this year that caused the FS to investigate a new DH trail and cite the builder. Well, they only caught one but $5000 fine and 3 month ban from the Coconino Nat. Forest. That's a hefty price to pay for an unauthorized activity on public land. Thankfully, from an advocacy and trail access perspective it's largely gone under the radar; unlike the citations and bans in Sedona that caused a **** storm.I've literally seen trail access lost because of a single picture on the internet.
But yea, that never happens... and this is why I gave up on being involved. Almost 20 years later, nothing has changed.
