They should probably stick to walking if they can't handle a couple bumps in the trail.

Ever try poking chalk into firm dirt? It just crumbles. Besides most chalk is short and wouldn't stick up far enough. Duh!

There's a bit more sand/loose stuff than I guess would be ideal, but it's mostly very fast and fun. One problem---in the south section of twisties (I believe this goes from number 6 to 19 or something like that?) there in the big rock garden it looks like someone has been removing rocks Not sure if this is from natural processes or from human ones, but it would be kind of nice to see them make their way back in.
PS thanks to those who maintain this great trail.
