"Continues Schultz, “These trails were excavated in some people’s backyards. The question here is; ‘Have these people ever been asked if they want trails in the canyons behind them?”"

If they were literally excavated in people's backyards, that would be an issue. But apparently, as Ms Schultz continues, it happened in the canyons behind them. This is inflammatory misinformation.

Secondly, did anyone ever ask if they didn't want the trails? Take a poll. My guess is that Ms Schultz would be in the minority by a large margin. There are scarce recreational opportunities in San Diego, especially considering the potential of the area. The Mission Trails issue, as noted in the article, is just one example of such overreach and bureaucracy.
