Vulture View, at Whiting Ranch, has been re-routed where it bombs down the boundary to Sage Scrub, and it's pretty crap. It's all loose since again they did the job in the dryest soil possible, with no rain in sight; but even when it firms up, I don't think they cut a very good line. I assume this was done to reduce speed. The old line was ultra fast. A set of switchbacks have been added to drop the line further down the slope. Loose as they are, the switch backs are tough to navigate and required a dab from me. Then a thin, loose, pumpy single track follows the slope at a lesser grade before joining back with the old trail right where the sight lines were worst. Lower speeds, but still not a good two-way trail. Hopefully the switch back is more fun when it gets packed down? They also did a re-route after Sage Scrub joins Sleepy Hollow, again in what I believe is an attempt to reduce speeds. I had to pedal through this area, so I guess it worked. Maybe once I've ridden it a few times it'll flow better? Pretty disappointed overall. Cactus turned out pretty fun once a second crew reworked it after a rain. Some of the pumps are right before a turn, which can lead to a surprising lack of braking, but after a few runs you figure it out. We'll see how this all turns out.
