I just rode out there for the first time in awhile and the connector from trail 1 to 3 is gone!  Totally threw me off cause I've made that turn hundreds of times and it just isn't there anymore.  Anybody know what happened and how are you suppose to ride trails 3&4 coming from the both side of the system?

 

Thanks

I went by there twice and never saw it, but I was looking at the old spot as I haven't been there since the connecter was moved.  So if I'm riding from the west, it will show up sooner than it used to right?  Thanks for the update pilznr!

I have ridden that trail recently, and I explored a little to see what the problem was.

I found that somebody had coated that connector with coffee and let it freeze. Not only was it gross and stinky, but it caused a safety hazard.

Then this nefarious vandal had the nerve to waste precious bananas by unpeeling them and scattering them along each segment of the trail.

It really was a huge mess. They must have blocked the trail because of the mess and the smell.

Craig, how am I that despicable creature you posted a picture of? I am simply a biker who is obsessed with coffee, bananas, and biking.

Back on subject to help the original poster here. I rode there yesterday and the entrance to trail 3 you are looking for has been moved just 20-30 feet up the trail. It's just after you go through the switchback coming from the trail 1 trailhead.
