A hiker stabs a mountain biker so badly that he had to be airlifted to Harborview.

No injuries reported to the hiker, but he felt threatened.  Be careful out there, everyone.

Just because someone is 6+ decades old -- it doesn't mean they have grown up.

Man, I knew hikers hate mountain bikers, but this is over the top.

Apparently he stabbed him because he was on top...of him, and with an illegal switchblade type knife.

As i both hike and mt bike i always yield to up hill traffic whether  hiking or biking. Much harder to regain momentum on a bike in a root ad rocky uphill section.

Stuff like this just reinforces my love of animals and my general disappointment in my fellow man.

We are in the midst of a crisis of lack of trail decency and situational awareness.

I see it in many forms every single time I'm out, and as I've been hiking and climbing here for almost 30 years, the change I've seen is nothing short of heart-breaking.

If we aren't each asking ourselves, "How is my trail behavior affecting the experience of others on the trail?" we are part of the problem.

I don't think this has anything to do with trail etiquette. The guy is a whack-job.

a trend?   Seems that whack-job is the "new" normal.

Narcissists have always been a trail problem, from the jerks playing loud music, the numbskulls rolling boulders on highly traveled trails, the @$$hats leaving TP flowers on the trail, the "my dog is exempt" crowd,  all have one thing in common - They are #1!!!!!!! and the rest of us can pound sand.

I got some awesome schadenfreude with the guys rolling boulders on the trail just above Yakima Park - I told them there was trail just below them and they basically gave me the finger...just as a LEO ranger came around the corner.  He was pissed off as they likely just bombarded him.

I had pedals that have clips on one side and platforms on the other. For anything technical use platforms. But the stabber sounds like a sociopath shakehead.gif

Agreed,  but I think it took two egomaniacs to have the situation deteriorate to the degree that it did.


I think part of the issue is people thinking "I have the right of way" rather than "these are suggestions to help people get along on the trail."    If both of these rude dudes had behaved more in the classic Seattle "no you go" manner than an "I have the right of way".


At least the hiker was only armed with a knife and not a handgun.

The whole episode is ridiculous.

I think we as a species are so far gone that Jesus is ticking off his travel checklist, and is redding up to come down and pay us that last, promised visit.
