Booby Traps on 717 Area and Rampart

Beware of nails, cables and man-made spike strips on these trails till FS gets to the bottom of it.

Thank you for the heads up.

What happened did someone hit one? Are they okay?

Not to worry. . . it's just the peaceful environmentalists.
We just need to better appreciate the Celebration of Diversity, Mother Earth Goddess, and CoExistance. . . . They are simply nudging us in the proper direction.

Maybe someone should contact a news agency to report on this. Bringing it to the attention of the public may be a good thing. If that occurs, then maybe the FS Ranger alongside Roscoe P. Coltrane will address it on air, ensuring the public that the culprits, when caught, will be charged with felonies.

From Thumper Talk:
I just received the following information from a friend who rode Rampart today. Nails (2.5 long) and barb wire were encountered on the new single track located south of 650. The booby trap caused 5 flats on 3 bikes and the riders getting out after dark. One rider suffered an ankle injury in a fall due to a flat front tire. The nails were located approximately 0.5 to 1.0 miles before GPS Coordinates: Lat/Long N 39 19 19.5 W 105 degrees 07 38.5 Map datum WGS 84. Use caution or avoid the trail all together.


Update: I have been advised that the FS et al have cleaned the area of debris and they say it's good for riding. They've also taken fingerprints from the nails and are in hot pursuit of the jerks.

Fingerprints? That's surprising. Hope it's accurate, and that they really are going to hunt down the culprits.

Yeah well even if they "cleared" the trail the jerks are out there and those areas should be ridden with caution now. My bet is they are doing it at night (or they have a lot of balls to do it during the day when pretty much any rider will be out there), if this keeps up who wants to go in the Jeep up there one night maybe camp.

If anyone knows this j_m dude on ThumperTalk have him look at that thread or call KRDO.

This is what I posted to Thumpertalk:

Hey j_M go here, the news wants to talk to the person with information...Being I'm a 3rd or 4th party to all of this I don't have any details.
https://www.facebook.com/KRDONewsCha...=share_comment

The post KRDO did to me...
"Mark, can you please give Jonathan a call at 719-310-0450 Thank you"

Everyone chill. The Sheriff is aware of this issue, this thread and the TT thread.
Let them do their job and let's keep our comments to ourselves.
