       The mapping on this is not quite right as it appears the entrance (bottom) to the new sidewinder trail will start about a 100 meters up gaglardi from the entrance to the pipeline trail where nicole's finishes.

       Is this trail open? It has been under construction for a while, signs were still up last week...
