    Is anyone riding this? I signed up but have never ridden these trails and would love to tag along if there's a group going.

    It’s really hilarious (and sad) that it’s STILL not open full time.

    It's ridiculous. I have lived in the shadow of these trails for 25 years and never been on any of them.

    Agreed. Is there a rational rationale for it being shut??

    All are welcome. I like folks to be aware of the metrics or degree of difficulty, so they may feel good about the ride.
    I may not recommend the ride for those under stronger intermediate.
