      reporter All clear. The new stairs are still steep! But much wider than before. Three straight sections of 20 steps with two short landings.

       I'm kind of curious why this trail went from green to black? Haven't been there since the end of last year, did anything change in a major way?

       When is this trail maintenance schedule to end? I was surprised the trail was closed but not posted on here as closed.

       Trail is now open! December 2018, not December 2019 as stated in recent reports.
