Pictured here are two man-made signs saying, “Protect the land. Don’t cut through” and “No bike area.” These are the result of efforts by citizens to help preserve the trail and natural habitat. Taking frequent shortcuts between switchbacks has a detrimental impact on the land, causing vegetation loss, hillside erosion, and land degradation. This erosion can lead to increased pollution and sediment in waterways, harming fish and other species that rely on the water. Switchback trails were created to prevent this from happening, keeping the land healthy and the trails stable!
