Call the police. This is criminal behaviour and should be investigated. Moreover, it reveals the anti-MTB zealots for the idiots they really are. In the battle over public opinion and local government support, it can only help to have hard proof of anti-MTB fanatics looking like a minority of lunatics. It may even push some of the more extreme people to more moderate positions.
Better yet, maybe the police will fluke out and actually catch the person.

Yes Please forward the pictures and other evidence to the police. This is definitely criminal behaviour that needs to be investigated. I can't tell if that's actually a carpet knife but this person could have killed someone, maybe even a child. The police will take this very seriously. Forwarding this to the media is a good one also.

Wow, so glad I've never come across anything like that.
I think the idea of forwarding this info to the media, as well as police, is a great idea. Get a little public awareness out there and maybe another trail user will catch someone in the act!

Even if the police are unable to find the person responsible, their involvement may at least send a message to the perp. It's also possible that the person will blab, and others will see the news, and the perp gets id'ed. That's the way many cases progress. In the case that anyone does get hurt, this also provides a history to the issue that investigators can potentially link together. Somebody reported some broken glass set up to cut people at the run-out of a slab on Cypress a few weeks ago. So this does start to potentially have the look of a real issue. Anyone know if Vandeman is vacationing on the North Shore?

Best thing you did was alert others so they can be aware, and thanks also for removing the hazards!

Looks like something a 12 year old would do. Not all that sophisticated, by the looks of it.

Seems a bit more like a joke than "sabotage" to me. I don't think a rider's going to miss seeing that thing and somehow crash onto it.
