Went up there yesterday to check it out. It's actually in surprisingly good shape considering how bad I heard it was. I went in fully expecting to walk the entire trail, but there were only three particularly bad sections where it was would be damaging to ride. Overall I thought the trail work was pretty good; I hated the old CBC and I could see myself riding this occasionally!
Parts of the old CBC suffered from what I think has been an issue with a lot of trails for a long time - corners that are too tight for their specific section of trail. Those sections definitely took (take) away from the experience of the trail as a whole - ie busting the flow. What's made that worse is as bikes have changed and gotten longer those out of place tight corners have become even troublesome. Don't know if I'll make it up to CBC this year to see how things have changed.
