Went out here today after several years away and torn shirt is just awesome. The new sections are really fun.

Trail was in excellent condition. 2 trees down. Frankly I forgot to note where the first one was on the Torn Shirt. The second one is on the Lost Loop after Tornado Alley right after the fallen stump crossing where it switches back to the left. Both will require a chain saw.

I went to the MMBA Trails page to see if the new beginner trail was mapped yet. It seems that none of the maps are currently working.

I highly doubt that the map has been updated yet. Here is an rough overhead of the trail. You will enter it just before you would enter the other trails at the hiking/biking split. You will see a sign on your left hand side.

Thanks. I found it to be much better marked last night. BTW, Murray Lake, Lost, Found, Found and Appleton were fast and flowing. A LOT of sand but very well maintained. Thanks for all the work out there!

Trail was great today. Tree down on the Torn Shirt right in the middle of the first reroute. You can see it if you look down the hill where the old trail used to go.

Rode all 5 loops today. The trail was perfect. No trees down.

Yez, we got tons of rain here at BRA. I would say definitely not going to be ready to ride today.

That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the quick update.
