A 1.5 mile section of the trail, beginning at Bernie Drive and Fruit Valley Road, will close to the public mid-May, and will remain closed until the end of the year. Work will include trail widening, resurfacing and trailhead improvements.

    While this is probably the most damaged section of the trail, why would they close it in the summer? Why couldn\’t they work on it when lots of bikes and pedestrians wouldn\’t be using it?
