Thanks for clarifying. "Closed" was the wrong term to use as I suspected some of the trails had just been naturally reclaimed by the forest due to lack of use/maintenance, but it's interesting to see just how many.
that's the point though, a lot of the trails you list have been lost simply due to lack of maintenance and/or lack of ridership. some of those trails were built by dangerous dan for a very select group of riders who could actually ride that stuff. i agree it's sad that some of the shores history is slipping away, but if harldy anybody can ride a trail then it's fate is pretty much sealed.
