Trail progress at the top of Dragoon Gulch. These guys are literally making in roads. The new trail in the first photo was an old partial property trail yesterday afternoon. Now it is a connector from the old trail to the new extension. The trail goes through the manzanita bushes.
In the second photo top of the old hill shows the road closed sign has moved and it looks like the rocky parts may have been smoothed over so one doesn't have to carefully pick one's way up or down the hill through the rocks. (Wonder if my feedback yesterday that the trail wasn't runnable yet made a difference.)
The third photo is taken below both of the others almost next to one of the teail marker rocks. The new punch-through entrance is to the right, the steep part to the old top to the left.
Trail is supposed to be usable by the end of next month. It is expanding the existing 1.5 miles by another 1.5 miles that will provide different options for longer runs, walks and hikes.
I hope they have planned for the rains. One spot where the trail is this year was a seasonal streamlet last year. *
*PSA* I know a majority of my followers found me in the group keep calm and whole30 on, on Facebook but this is a PSA to let you know that you will no longer be able to follow me there. The admins have decided to kick me out with no reason or explanation and will not answer any questions that I have. I was a member for over a year and and brought 80+ people into that group. Apparently they are on a power trip and the only explanation anyone can come up with, including those that have realized I have been kicked out is that they are intimidated by my food and following and or jealous. I have consulted with Melissa Hartwig on certain dishes that I was afraid would be SWYPO and even though the head mistress gave me the all clear, This group disagrees. They believe in their own rules and think they are above Melissa. If you are a member of this group or considering it, I highly caution against it. If you need recommendations for other groups to follow on Facebook I’d be happy to give you recommendations, there are tons out there that are extremely beneficial! 💖💖💖
