That rail section ended up at 18 a number of years ago (at least 5).
Partly my fault, I found it near the trail to the tennis courts site and pulled it out of the brush / leaves so that others could see part of the history of the area...
Why 18, you ask? That particular site tends to attract some very "interesting" groups during the height of the summer, as evidenced by ample garbage, live tree cuttings, and occasional TP flower just shy of pit privy.

There are a number of summits in the area that are still stripped bare from the fires of the turn of 20th century, so with some whackin' one can get a glimpse of different valleys and remains of what was once there.
