Very cool peak. I will have to go check it out. Great page and nice pictures.
It sounds like Sheila is saying, "Step off!"
Private property issues are thorny at best and there must be some way to get permission. Sheila, who do we ask? Please offer something constructive here rather than threaten those who would like to visit this unique summit with arrest.
If it sounded like a threat when I informed you that Step Mountain is private property, well it is what it is. There has been an increasing problem with trespassers in the area. The littering and dangerous illegal campfires are also a serious problem. This is constructive information. The area is private property, owned by multiple individuals, so I can't provide you with names of "who to ask". There are 'No Trespassing' signs posted. The residents are tired of this problem and the police are frequently being called when trespassers are spotted. So hopefully this information is taken seriously as it is taken very seriously by the residents/owners.
I am an administrator for this website and saw your post.
I decided to look into it since the current maintainer of the page hasn't logged in since last year. You are correct that the land is private property.
The entire parcel that covers the formation is owned by the Skaggs Catholic School LLC, DBA Juan Diego Catholic School.
Here is a screenshot I took of the parcel map:
Anyway, since the maintainer of the page seems to be absent, I'll edit the page and say that the land is private with a photo displaying the private land boundaries and say that people shouldn't go there without permission.
I'll contact the Catholic School and see if they would rather just have the page deleted or if they give permission (which seems unlikely).
Thanks for bringing this up.
I honestly don't know how I became the owner of this page. I didn't create it, and the pictures aren't mine. Update away.
OK sounds good. I can put this page in the orphanage for now.
I HATE private property...with an intense fiery burning passion!
IMO all land outside of specifically residentially zoned areas should be open for people to simply pass through.
