I was up there on Sunday the 8th? or 9th? after a heavy rainstorm. It was possible to cross at that time. The log is there, still. I you see any trail vandalism please post here.

Different yes, but from a legal perspective, the Forest Office would be extremely vulnerable and liable to a civil suit if their "modifications" and "decommissioning" resulted in injury or worse. The actions of the enforcement officer in this case are certainly not criminal, but legally ill-advised.

It is a known route, with a rewarding destination, closely adjacent to well-used areas, a new twist and social media prominence. Hell yes, people will go there! The deliberate actions of the officials increased the hazard of the route, thus there really is some liability for the lawyers to create billable hours from.

Many of you were left wondering about the circumstances and the full story surrounding the decommissioning of the Paranoid Creek Bridge. I am finally pleased to say that a full account of all the details is now available on a new website just launched today:

http://garibaldipark2020.com

The time is long overdue for the truth and the facts to be brought into the light regarding this rather complicated and unpleasant story.
