  1. Way to many cars on the trail from Ritchie road to shogomoc. People should park and walk the trail as there are houses, animals, and children close to the road and it’s causing concern in the community. There are also Potholes in road and speed on the road is outrageous. It’s also sad to see the garbage down the sides of the road to the bridge and people are using the bathroom in the woods. The beauty of This area is going to be destroyed if we don’t address and fix the issues. May I suggest to gate off the trail to vehicles. Also, may I suggest an outhouse be placed at shogomoc.

  2. is this a hard trial for someone that has bad kness and has trouble walking?

  3. No. You can drive right to it. There is a slight grade from the road up to the bridge.
