It's so, so much better than what was there before. I always felt this bridge was kinda sketchy. Today the group I was with all used the boards as a berm and we were pedaling through/out of it. Really nice.

We all have Pete (PK) to thank for that design . Way better then it ever was. I agree Steve, especially coming out of the humps
with any speed.

Rode @ 1900 and the trail was perfect nice and tacky. I also love the bridge work as well nicely done.

Glad you like it! Pete, Aaron, Mike, and Phil did an awesome job on it. I unfortunately was not able to help out
on this project, due to a work picnic planned over the July 4th weekend :evil: .

I rode yesterday at 8pm or so. The Pokemon GO people can get annoying........they were only in the park and by the crane so mostly avoided.

Trail is good and fast but the roots seem to be more exposed this summer than I remember from last year.

Small/medium size tree down near the south end of the trail, but north of the new banked bridge. I tried to move it but way too heavy and long to move (or maybe I'm too weak lol) It would be a quick saw job though.
