As reported under the wMMBA forum section the trail has been rerouted and restored to the original 5.5 miles.
I have not been there yet to check it out though.

Hadn't checked in here in a while and was surprised by the loss of the pine section. That said, though, the reroutes and new features totally make up for the loss of acreage! The SRT flow of old has returned and even the slightly rough new stuff left me grinning the whole time. The Moose Racing reroute signage is awesome and impossible to miss!

I must have missed something because I only got 5.0 miles on the ODO, and there was a really confusing intersection off the old ridge line (railroad bed?). There's a new cut through there that takes you right and back onto the incoming trail while the old left turn and over the ditch bridge appeared to be blocked off. I couldn't figure out any route through there that made sense, so we just walked over the blockage and continued on the old trail. If this has been rerouted, some version of signage needs to be put in there. Also, the bridge is looking a bit sketchy these days and needs some lovin'.

Otherwise, GREAT JOBS, GUYS!!!
