VIDEO: Proof of the elusive trail gnome

December 3rd, 2013 by tristan baurick

A few weeks ago, I wrote a story about trail maintenance work resuming at Banner Forest Heritage Park after a three-year ban.

I expected to see the trails clogged by brush and fallen trees. Instead, the trails were passable, if a big shaggy on the edges.

The volunteer trail workers – most of whom were mountain bikers who frequent Banner – were coy about who kept the trails clear.

“A gnome,” said one of the volunteers.

“God bless those invisible trail gnomes,” another said.

Above is documented proof of the not-so-invisible trail gnomes, courtesy of the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
