Let me start off by saying I am guilty of helping to make Wrightwood a popular place to ride, no not saying solely responsible just have to say a bit guilty with video and strava. That being said I have been able to make some first had obsevations, so seeing is believing right? I’m sure there are people who will disagree? Come all yee cause there are so many good things about Wrightwood that will disapear soon so get it while you can! When I first started riding Wrightwood probably 6 years ago I was completly blown away by how pristine those trails were, hard packed and no braking bumps, really! I mean every one of them. Never saw but a few other tire tracks of the lucky few. I rode my most favorite trail yesterday (Boyscout) and saw the familiar, every once and awhile horse track and immediately noticed how much damage one or two horses do! But here is the catch, horses are far and few between, every once in awhile kind of thing in Wrightwood. Further up the trail of course now I am noticing the beginings of damage from far more mountain bikes than horses are doing. This place will not be the same in a few years just like it’s not the same now. On Leprechaun the damage is more apparent, I absolutely do not believe that hikers do the kind of damage that bikes do, you can notice it youself Saturday when the big possy comes to town. I have heard through the grape vine that the shuttlers are begining to shuttle Blueridge which is a very popular hiking trail, it’s like, move over hikers cause here we come! So let the conflict begin! Yes these trails have been here for a long time mostly under the radar, but social media is rapidly changing that! Because of media and the popularity of the sport we be shooting our own foot, I’m sure in some way we all know this. Can’t stop the machine! I know I don’t have a right to ask anything of you, but I’m going to anyway. Please be nice to Wrightwood! Sorry mtnbikej for the negitive post, it’s my last one.
