A “No Trespassing” sign has been posted near Montana City’s primary access to the South Hills Trail System, and Prickly Pear Land Trust is encouraging people to avoid the area until the issue is resolved.

PPLT Executive Director Mary Hollow said a portion of the Eddye McClure East trail was built on private property at least a decade ago with permission from the landowner at the time, and the sign was posted at the nearby Martinez Gulch parking area this week, after the land was sold. While Hollow does not know who bought the land, the buyer’s agent told her the new owner would call her soon.
