Some thing went to my mined last night.
As we ended up on a close gate on our way back to the High Point/ Paloma truck trail, just past the new to me, Hippy Campground. We turned around, disappointed and went on our way.
I saw the new chain and a cheep lock on the closed gate. I did not get off the bike to see if the gate were really locked, or just closed and the chain dangle around to give us and other the impression that the gate is LOCKED. Next time I will check and make sure the Gate locked and not just closed.
I can see the owner of the hippy Camp, cutting off the regular 4x4, bike M-bike traffic this way.
If time allows me , I will ride down there again this week and check for: "CLOSED ore LOCKED"
