You now must stay to the left and begin riding the Lazy River section, the old groove of trail that dumps out into the ITC corridor across from the S turns is now closed. The new, single-loop piece in the south end is essentially complete.
You'll ride it by heading south on Blue, stay to the left, cross the ITC corridor, and follow the groove / cleared spot south, back north, south again, down the double-berm hill, up the bench cut climb, then back north (optionally riding the Red trail) where you'll get dumped out on to the edge of the ITC corridor. Follow this north for a few hundred feet then veer left on to the newly cut trail which provides a view down the ridge and along the power lines (this is a really pretty spot around sunset). After this you'll end up pointing back north just past where you originally went left. (The few hundred feet of going along the ITC corridor will become a clearer route shortly... But for all intents and purposes it'll follow that corridor.)
Signage is coming soon, likely by the end of the week, along with a map update.
If you are heading in from the train tracks and wish to head straight to the north end of the park, turn right slightly sooner than normal and ride this new piece of trail. Otherwise, immediately turn left and ride Lazy River first. (If you are confused, stop and look around. Everything is very close together here, and the old piece of trail didn't make sense where it was and thus needed to go away.)
