Such a great trail, but it's such a different style to a lot of trails now. I used to be able to clean it most of the time, but I rode it a couple of weeks back and was absolutely owned by it. I think it's because I don't ride that style much anymore, and it was a good reminder to mix up my trail choices so that I keep (re-learn) those skills. One other thing to keep in mind is that trail builders are often happy to listen to your ideas as long as you're polite about it and approach without an expectation that your ideas matter more than theirs. I've made changes to trails I have worked on based on suggestions from riders, and if I disagree with their ideas I'm happy to explain why I've done what I've done. But the flipside is that if you do something on your own without talking to them/me - it creates enmity rather quickly.
