Evidentally many of us missed something on that forum and on the FOTR list. Little Sluice is next. Actually, I'd like to see everyone post up their gatekeeper pics. It's gone now, we might as well remember it.

Not a chop!

Why? No official reason I know of.. my geuss to prevent more damage to the trail/hilside by gateker by eroision when the big rocks start moving, and the hill starts coming down, and or possibly it was "to difficult" so new trails kept being blazed through the brush? Why? I don't know those are guesses.

Plenty of discussion on this in the Rubicon forum -- I don't wanna rehash it in both places: /forum/29-rubicon-trail/

I fought this in every meeting I attended, I will continue to fight blasting Little Sluice, as well. Limited blasting may be a good idea for maintenance, but I'd prefer it to be an effort of last resort, applied only after every other reasonable solution has been implemented.

Gatekeeper needed work. I'm not sure it needed blasting. Regardless, with the blasting done, now FOTR is going to need help with the next step: raising grade back level with the concrete for erosion control.

So why would they do that? All it's going to do let more people on the trail. Maybe they want more people to damage the area so they can shut it down.

Actually, I find this comment very troubling:

Within 10 years, the Rubicon will be paved over and a nice white dashed line painted down the center with this logic.

The problem with this reasoning... another spectator spot will form, the same problems will show up.

So if the same solution is going to be applied to every place people bunch together, it won't take long for the Rubicon to be completely "civilized".

Just my 2 cents.
