       For such a cool trail it sure has a weak name. Any suggestions anyone?

       I would just avoid this trail entirely for a while, maybe until the bridge is done. The owner at the south side was yelling at me for even being on the road in the area and started punching the road sign that says there's construction in the area. He was incredibly irate about people even being in the neighbourhood at all.

       Maybe we should call this trail "Hater's Lane"

       back then I added this trail and called it Roller Coaster and somehow was renamed to Lovers Lane and now Haters Lane. Lol.
