property at 630 Hampstead when they moved in in November. The property is tucked into the western edge of Kuebler-Langford (east of Bird Hills Nature Area). In a written statement, the family says the largest of the trails "bifurcates the property and runs from one side completely to the other."

The trails, which fork off unassumingly from the main Kuebler-Langford path, are now dotted with "No Trespassing" signs placed by the Browns, as well as "Trail Closed" signage posted by Ann Arbor Parks & Recreation. Jason Tallant, a natural areas technician with the parks department, says that unofficial trails crossing from parks onto residential (and especially railroad) property are a common problem and one that the city has little control over.
