Trail Tabula Rasa
Fun track, but got confused a lot because of poor signage.

Looking for it from the main intersection, you won't see a sign, you first need to take Reclamation.

The fork for the shortcut connector is not signed and I had to stop to figure out which way I needed to go.

Completely missed the last part as I got back onto reclamation by mistake.

Not sure where exactly, but a few time I was wondering if I was going backward. The exit of trails could benefit from being marked with a red X, similar to one of the bad shortcuts.

Overal very fun trail that can get you to decent speed and encourage you to keep youe momentum. Well balanced for its rating. Very well maintained.

Improved signs could improve the first experience by a lot.
