Stop Trail Sanitizing

There is a growing trend in MacDonald Forest that is very disturbing, that of "trail sanitizing."  It started last year when someone destroyed the jump on Endo, but in the last few months Bombs Away, The Tower Trail, and Poison Ivy have all had long time log crossing obstacles removed from the trail.  These are "unofficial" trails that are not maintained by OSU, so it must be someone from the Mountain Bike community.  These are logs that be came part of the trail, and for years riders have gotten better learning to clear them.  Now it is not a trail with character, but just something you fly through (which isn't always the best).  Who ever it is, please ask before doing something that drastic.
