I’ve tried a couple of times to link to websites that include a description of trail gargoyles but trying to insert a link in my post seems to delete the entire post every time.

It’s a trail-building term that describes an object used to discourage people from stepping somewhere. Its most common (and I believe original) use is to describe the rocks piled along the sides of a stone staircase on the trail to keep people from walking on one side or the other of the steps.

A google search for “trail maintenance gargoyle” returns a number of useful links.
