One note - thought I was done with the re-routing but there is still one more section that still needs some work.
The ride was nice although it took me a while to find it. I turned off the fire road--prematurely by the blue ribbon and blue blazes--which turned out to be a dead end, Further down, after riding on the fire road more, I saw the yellow ribbon and hopped on the trail.
It was very squishy at the north end (still top layer of organic) but I had a blast. A couple spots (as you had forewarned) were almost impossible to discern but after a dismount and careful examination of either the crushed leaves or the yellow ribbons, I figured out the trail direction.
I took the liberty of raking (with a sideways motion of my foot) a large part of the these areas that have yet to be raked. Also, at a couple of the larger logs, I located some flat rocks for ramps. The log jumps are still challenging but more conducive to "not stop the flow." There are a few awesome sections with lots of hairpin turns, especially after I crossed the stream, etc. I enjoyed the ride a lot and plan on returning (probably with my son) to stay on the bike more now that I know the line.
I "christened" our benched areas with tire marks and rode toward Sanford Road but turned around and headed back to the car where the trail disappeared into the leaves on the downhill.
I definitely will be back for more trail bldg whenever I can make it - I enjoyed that as well.
Congratulations on creating a potentially great place to ride!
