Sadly trail vandalism is nothing new, but it’s not often you catch the the trail trolls in the act. In the UK, 17-year-old Nathan Cartwright did – getting them on camera he held his own too as incredibly they made out he was in the wrong.

With mainstream media like BBC picking up on it, let’s hope something positive comes from it too. After all, these trail trolls can cause serious harm if someone was to fall foul of their actions.
We often see images of trail sabotage popping up on social media – branches strewn across the track and worse, so if anything use this video to err on the side of caution when ripping down you favourite trails for the first run – you never know what’s around the next corner. Especially if you’re easing back into things following COVID lockdown.
