Good idea! Too bad it doesn't go all the way thru but I think the neighboring property owners' property lines go all the way to Upriver Drive. Need more people riding this so it gets beaten down and burned-in. Watch for stumps!

I think this is an excellent decision. There are just way too many tiny segments with different names. Having at least one long central trail will help with signage and navigation.

Yes, Evergreen is cleaning up the mapping system and making it easier for people new to the area or that don't know they're way around beacon as well easier to navigate.

Yeah, that's a smart idea, it's really hard to describe to new people how to get around up there. Just wanted to know, thanks!
