this route is for planning purposes only and may not be ride-able as is

this route links a bunch of blue trails together, however, it is most likely that the route won't work out as I've planned (I don't know the trails here --I am only doing this to get an idea of how to ride the trails here when I do visit)

Is the lower section re-opened after maintenance. My friend told me that on Saturday he rode the whole trail top to bottom.
