Mariner's Ridge, owned by a private estate, has been officially closed since April 2013 with a couple of sings but many hikers ignored the warning and entered the trail crossing the chains. As another reviewer reported, a senior tourist fell off and died from a combination of heart attack and the fall in June. A couple of weeks later, a young man was lost, mobilizing not only family and friends but the police, ambulances and helicopters to rescue him. He walked out from where he spent the night. Hikers' bad manners to litter the neighborhood, illegal parking, urinating on property, and using driveways as picnic spots continued. Finally, in December, the estate installed metal fences to completely block the entry into the trail. Neighbors are relieved that they don't have to deal with ill feelings toward bad mannered hikers or travel agencies whose vans were bringing up dozens of tourists making the neighborhood look like a zoo. May I also point out that the trail area is owned by a private estate, not by government.
