A man who lives near Oprah Winfreys new property above Telluride, Colorado, is suing her for allegedly blocking access to hiking trails open to neighbours for decades.
Retired nuclear physicist Charles D. Goodman claims Winfreys Yellow Brick Road company, the propertys former owners and the town of Mountain Village made a secret deal to close access to the trails that cut across the property purchased for $10.9 million in March.
I dont care if Oprah is a neighbor, but if she is going to cut off access to trails, I dont find that acceptable, Goodman said in an interview with the Denver Post.

We’re sorry but the queen has annexed your trail.
For the amount of money she’s worth you figure she could establish some form of conservative organization to maintain the trails the land and generate all that good will.
Ih the IMAGE that the headline brought to mind.
I immediately wondered how WIDE these trails might be.
frankly I cant imagine Okra going NEAR a trail...but I can certainly “see her blocking one
ah the liberal cry for all time.....what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine. Oprah practices it perfectly just like the other O
Private property rights for me but not for thee ... Bueller? Bueller?
well this is too easy....just ‘discover’ a turtle on the trail...
oprah could stand in it and block the holland tunnel.
Typical. Nearly every self styled champion of the common man turns out to be greedier than most.
All liberals want to have a “King’s Forest.” No wonder they hate private land ownership for us.
if oprah bought it... oprah can block it.
i think the physicist is trespassing.
This illegal action by Oprah, (many States have a time period established for earned public usage of a private property road or trail), hopefully is against a Black Scientist.
Otherwise, Racism could be added to her anti-male, anti-Science, anti-elderly indisputable charges.
Oprah is a douche bag, always has been..came into her stepmother’s home and yelled “Negros in the house, negros in the house” and laughed..most people know what an absolute fraud Oprah is but she is a hero on the left since she gives millions to the Dem party
Mr. Goodman, you are a RACIST!!!!
virtually the same thing is happening on Maui , where Oprah has ticked all off her Maui neighbors by negotiating private ranch road access down to Kihei and the beaches , and blocking all all other public usage . Yet another case of the arrogance of the self appointed imperial negroes .
The deed is a public document. If there are easements in the old one then people can pull the new one to see if they are still there.
I thought all beaches were public in Hawaii,with the exception of some Federal lands.
Sorry, but if you are THE 1%, you can do what you want. Especially if you are Oprah Winfrey, the biggest over paid celebrity in history.( Gayle King, her good friend is another one. I met them at a restaurant in Hartford. Rude people.)
