Then on Saturday, we returned to Marshall Canyon, where we were stopped by Claremont’s volunteer ranger and ticket writer. Claremont again closed their portion of the trail without posting the closure at the La Verne trailhead. We grumbled, they let us pass after a hint about Claremont’s liability for any knee injuries if we turned around and returned the very steep way we ascended.
