Geff,

there are also a few trees down in Bluffs, just to the south of the north entrance (by that weird bld that I have no idea what they do there), and one in sunset-brooks close to the north end, just south/west of the diving board.
there was another one, but I forgot where it is...

I went out today, it's too wet to ride without feeling guilty. Bluffs was too muddy for sure, Langford was ok but still pretty muddy in spots. I'd give it a few days. I ended up cutting the ride short.

Thanks for the update. I was out with the NAP on Friday and it was a muddy #@$% show. the rain this week will not help, avoid for a bit... :(

had a good meeting with the NAP regarding KL/GS parks. hopefully we'll have a plan we can take action on in the next few weeks. they're tied up with spring burns so we're on the so called back burner ;)

Looks like we could be loosing a nice bit of trail by the Leslie golf course if this complex gets put in:

Not sure how that affects A2 loop all that much, but for natural and aesthetic purposes, it will be a loss to the area. Ride and run past it all the time. Will now have to look at more housing development. :icon_puke_l: :icon_puke_r:

Yeah, looks to be far enough East and on the other slide of the golf course as to not impact the local loop trail through Leslie. Still its always sad to see wilderness go the way of housing development.

There's a rideable hiking trail that runs from behind the library to a parking lot off Plymouth rd.

Got it. I thought that trail is parkland from the city already. Will have to check it out more.

Based on the proposed development map, it looks like the southern section of the trail in Stapp Nature Area will be lost. I had assumed that all of those woods were part of Stapp, but it appears that the southern section is still owned by First Martin and will be developed.

We would run through there from time to time in order to break up the monotony of the road. Never thought about riding it though via a connector/spur as part of the A2 Loop.
