From Pathfinder:

Last Thursday I went up to our adopted trail to check things out. Greg Hoffmann has replaced the decals on the metal trail sign which had been previously removed by people using the sign for target practice. He has also installed another metal trail sign down at the junction of our trail 2N90 and 2N02.

My approach to Tip Top was by way of 2N01 & 2N02 from highway 38. In the area of Broom Flats I passed a yellow hummer with two males inside parked along side the road. Later in the day that same vehicle drove up Tip Top and we had a conversation for about 20 min. When I left Tip Top I drove back on 2N02 & 2N01. In the vicinity of the Rose Mine I saw 2 dirt bikers heading south on 2N02.  In the area of Broom Flats I passed a white pickup truck with a slide on camper heading north on 2N04. At 5 pm two forest service pickup trucks, one green with a male driver and the other white with a female driver passed me on 2N01. They were heading east on 2N01.
