Letter to the Editor: Trail letter was absurd

Re: and#8220;Build Trails Responsibly,and#8221; Sierra Sun, Dec. 2.

This was a really nice, well-built trail that was appreciated by many in the neighborhood, including a few mountain bikers perhaps, but mostly hikers. The warning sign placed at the dam by the rangers noted potential erosion and archaeological damage by the building of such unauthorized trails.

This trail was a significant threat to neither; however, the wholesale destruction left behind by the rangers’ eradication effort obviously wasn’t concerned with the sensitivity of anything natural or historical.

The whole thing is absurd! This is just another example of government busy bodies wasting taxpayer dollars flexing their authoritative muscles without intelligent regard for the original intent of the law.
