Illegaler bike-trail

Yesterday I went for a nice ride in the single-trails close to home only to find this: illegaler bike-trail, befahren verboten! My A2 level German is enough to understand it as illegal bike trail, riding prohibited

Been in Switzerland since 2013 and first time I see something like this. The only warnings I've encountered has been related to mother cows and calves and beware of shepherd dog on duty or something like that. These warnings make sense, cows defend their calves and shepherd dogs are there to take care of sheep....cyclists are a menace in their eyes and must be bitten. But this?

This is a not so frequented trail. I asked another cyclist and he was as surprised as me, no idea who could have done this. Of course a piece of wood with a sign won't stop anyone from riding, but you lose all your confidence to ride when someone is upset with bike riders and might be sabotaging the trail.

Where to ask for an answer? Could a forest in the top of a hill be private property and the owner doesn't like it? No shooting range nearby, no houses, nothing. It's a 20-30 wide trail a few people ride per day, I fail to see the damage to the forest. Who to ask in the gemeinde? All I know is einwohnerkontroll.
