I know trail modifications/improvements/changes in Squamish or any town can be a contentious issues.
I have to disagree with wall eater on this one though.
I hate approaching a trail and suddenly finding it dumbed down.
Some improvements I love - some I despise.
The roller coaster and jack trail improvements I hate. I am pretty sure it was done for the test of metal racers (I am one as well). I love novelty and interesting sections, for me that makes a trail.
The test is a funny course. 90[HTML_REMOVED]#37; road-style with some technical bits. I am worried to see the technical bits disappear and the road percentage/style get higher. Thank god the Plunge is considered sacred. For me the run out of roller coaster to the road always was that last little dose of fun before entering suburbia.
However, I am old enough to know that this issue comes up everywhere. It seems like only yesterday when the skinny off the old road to function was improved and every one was furious as it was the fun technical thing to be done on the way to work. I still miss that thing. Who did cut the trees?
I love the trail builder moto "build back better". I guess "better" for some means easier and less technical. Lets not make things too easy out there, otherwise I might as well get back on my road bike and jump rail tracks for fun instead of mtn biking.
NOT to hijack the thread - the new bridge is truly a work of art. I am in awe. Makes me want to vandalise my front porch to see if I can hire the team to re-build it.
