Observations: Noticed some braids beginning to appear on the green trail, around areas where the trail hugs close to the cliff edge. I also noticed some "freelance" (unauthorized) stunt building, in the form of two jump ramps, at the northern edge of the park behind the golf course. Some of the old freeride lines are being used again. This area was once a local hot spot for freeriding. Looks like it might be assuming that mantle again.

ATV riding continues, although no evidence of them on the singletrack.
