I'm looking at a few more areas to add trail... next year. Maybe 7 miles.

(As far as difficulty goes) I would normally go to Maybury but everything Ive heard is that the trail is still too wet to be ridden. Thanks in advance.

Sorry I didn't introduce myself but you borrowed my buddies pump and I was looking for the torx driver.
Trail was MUCH drier tonight, today made a huge difference. It was nearly perfect tonight.
Actually I think that was another guy. He followed me back to use my pump and it wasn't working for him so he got yours. But I figured out who you were after my wife told me. I'm the one that thought I had a T10 but didn't.
Not sure what to think of your Strava. GPS usually subtracts distance if it is off. Although look at your mapping. Last year on one of my rides I had poor phone signal and it had me riding across the golf course and through the pond. Anyway, on one bike I had laps of 5.78 mi and 5.85 mi. My wife's bike said 5.91 mi. So by wheel sensor I'm seeing 5.8-5.9 mi. Your mileage may vary.....
Edit: Forgot to add that when I come up to the ball fields, I just go straight back to the parking lot through the field. I see several cuts back down to the trail and wondered if I was supposed to take the trail back. I've had people coming at me the wrong way in that first section before.
