SAN LUIS OBISPO (CBSLA) – A large trampoline was found over the weekend in a remote area of the Los Padres National Forest, and the conservation group hopes to find volunteers who will jump at the chance to remove it.

Bryant Baker, the conservation director of Los Padres ForestWatch, says he was hiking in the Santa Lucia Ranger district near San Luis Obispo on Sunday when he found it. Based on satellite images of the area, he says he believes it appeared in the woods between late 2018 and early 2021.

The Los Padres National Forest includes about 1.75 million acres of mountain and coastal forest from northern Ventura County and across the counties of Kern, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. It is unclear how the trampoline was transported to the place where it was found, or whether it had actually seen any use – but no matter what, its presence is essentially large waste.
“In addition to being on uneven ground in a sensitive area, the trampoline is broken and dangerously backed up on ash blocks,” Baker said in an email. “So we are currently working on getting some volunteers out to the site to dismantle and remove it.”

This is not the first time this year that a home has been found in federal states. In July, a six-piece sofa set was found on a trail at Deer Creek in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area. It had sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, and cigarette butts, beer cans, and bottles found strewn around it indicated that the couch had been used.
