DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. - Officials with the Pike National Forest are confirming that a dangerous, improvised-spike strip was found on a trail in the Rampart Range area. The strip was found on a single-track trail May 5.

"The wire spikes were buried in the trail bed so that wheeled vehicles would be damaged and unsuspecting hikers could be injured," according to officials with the Pike National Forest.
