Could be one of the same idiots that were back on the South loop two track in the spring tearing things up.
I was there between 2:40-4. I have a copper/carbon colored helmet and was on a yellow bike (my Superlight). Don't
remember seeing a green/silver Iron Horse, so we must have just missed each other. I saw two guys riding together, one on a blue Specialized and directed them towards the new Buck Shaver section off of the South (Whitetail) loop.
I was getting some ideas for many improvements on the different sections of trail. I will be contacting you for berms.
This time of the year is the most popular for this system due to the tree colors, nice temps and lack of biting bugs.

the Buck Shaver section (signs got ripped down soon after I put them up), but you can access the South loop by going down the path at the Northwest end of the parking lot, you'll see the sign at the entrance. That leads to the Dragon's Tail section and the large part of the South loop which is directly behind the parking lot.
Where it sounds like you came out onto the gravel path you should've turned left and went down about 50 feet to where it the singletrack continues (there are arrow signs on trees at either intersection). It continues and gets you back to the main part of the West loop.
Yes, the leaves down on the trail make it more challenging to follow, but as soon as they are done falling, Rich and I will clear them off of the trail to make it easier to follow in the winter months. This trail doesn't get the traffic to smash them down enough and the clay based soil doesn't seem to mind them being removed. (whole other discussion)
