Hopefully the International Mountain Bicycling Association's Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew would also teach a little etiquite to their RIDERS. It is not unusual to go for a hike, on a trail, and find bike trails all over the place and area where trail bikes have done damage.
also if you are overtaking a hiker please give some sort of warning, NO I CAN NOT ALWAYS HEAR YOU COMING. one idiot on the Monolith Garden trail, bumped my wife a few weeks ago and left a sizable bruise on her elbow and tricep. He was courteous enough to look back and yell "move your f#$%# a#&* b_*%&$" and keep going at full speed.
and yes if we know you are coming we step to the side of the trail, except for the couple places you cant.
