Users of the trail had placed the orange snow stakes to delineate where the trail runs in order to keep users out of the ditch on the right because Placer County had rejected the idea. Now it appears that Placer County decided that it was a good idea and added the 4″x4″ poles and the “End County Maintained Road” sign.
I wonder why the county added that sign? There hasn’t been one of those there ever before. There are still unsolved issues about how the intersection is plowed and where that snow is pushed and piled up.
Always travel prepared to spend the night in case things go wrong: food, shelter, water, extra clothing, means to keep warm.
