Be careful people, after Sunday's trail work a fellow rider stopped by the parking lot and dropped these booby traps off which were found on a trail in the Watershed. Besides 2 flat tires he stepped on another device when he was walking out. The boards have razor blades embedded in them and are buried in the ground so they are hard to detect.
We've gotten several reports of these over the last several months. Stay safe out there and keep your eyes and ears out for the perp.
Here is the message from DNR on what to do if you any type of trail traps in the woods:
I have discussed this trail sabotage incident with our Natural Resources Police (NRP) and have the following to offer. First, when anyone finds something like razor blades in boards within the Watershed, please do not disturbed this important piece of evidence and call the Frederick County Sheriff’s office at 911 as this appears to be a criminal act. If anyone encounters a hunting or natural resources violation, please call 410-260-8888 as this is the number to DNR’s central communication office who will relay any complaints to our NRP officers.
