Scout Working on Trail Improvements, Fencing at Cobb Estate

A Long Beach Eagle Scout has started work on trail improvements and a gate project at the Cobb Estate, but trail access will not be blocked, according to a local trail group.

The Pasadena Star-News and Altadenablog both have articles up about the beginning of an Eagle Scout project at the Cobb Estate that once raised concerns about the possibility of trail access being restricted.

The project was and a photoshopped image from the Forest Service showing a gate that could restrict access to the park raised concerns among local trail users.

However, the scouts to address concerns with the project and according to Rob Staehle of the Working Group the project will not block any access.  He described the scout leaders doing the work as "highly responsive" to community concerns about trail access.

On Saturday, the scouts were working on trail improvements and a bench, and they will later put in new fencing at the head of the trail, leaving a gap for trail users to access the area.

The trail improvements were the idea of 14-year-old Eagle Scout candidate Kyle Blair, of Long Beach.

"Will not block any access" "will put in new fencing at the head of the trail. leaving a gap for trail users. ....so,you know the question here. What would a fence at the head of a trail be used for, when it is not used " to block any access???????? Has the overregulation brainwashed the scouts now? Are we to be governed by 14 year old kids who want to put up a fence on a public trail? Have I missed something here? If so, tell me. If not I will lead the move to remove it.
