       More than half of the trail is now closed and rerouted in a two track. Total bummer.

       The local group's facebook page says that a property issue was resolved mid-June with this trail. I didn't notice any double track in July, so I assume that it was this issue which was resolved and now all the trail is open.

       I've seen this referred to as "Stinking Spring" everywhere else. Is "Sticky Spring" an alternate name?
