Default That's all folks...

(Here's a link to the first of these posts)





I figure that I won't be back out there until I go with the rest of the Trails Advisory Committee on our official preview.

Nice photos. Did you notice while you were taking it that the puddle in the last left photo looks like a fish?

No, it wasn't until I put the image up on the forums that I noticed that.

I rode part way through the new area a couple of days ago. Bridges are all in but a couple still have some finish work remaining. It looks like it should be open by the first of the year.

I rode it again tonight just to see how it looks... Seeing that it was 8:30pm, I didn't get any photos.

I think the trail is finished. There's a few bridges that I'd personally like to see some handrails on, but I think that they aren't going to get them unless we see a rash of people falling off of them (they are pretty low bridges).

I was surprised to see in sections that they painted a center line and fog lines, but not the entire trail.

I rode it again on Saturday. They still had a construction fence panel at each end, but easy to get around. I think you are right that the bridges without railings are just low enough that they don't need one. The unfinished piece is the portion that goes around the eastern extension of the Beaverton Ops yard parking lot (south from the Scholls Ferry/Allen Blvd intersection and then west). This was still freshly packed gravel base, but no asphalt. You can avoid this by riding through the parking lot from the trail along the S side of Allen Blvd but you will have to carry your bike over the curb at each side.
