It's Open! (maybe)

Temperature at departure = 36° F (2° C)

This morning the Trail Closed sign at the Antioch bridge end of the long closed Indian Creek Trail path ... was moved off to the side.

Without hesitation, I headed down the path and was slowed about a third of the way down the hill by construction workers who are either working on the sound wall or doing some landscaping. The ding ding of my bell, a quick wave and "good morning" were met with some icy stares. No worries though as I sped off. A little further on to the west the path was awash in muck that had eroded down the hill, but if you slow down it is passable. Here is the west end of the trail before it runs under 435 on the way to Corporate Woods.

The Corporate Woods side of the path still has the fallen tree and Trail Closed signs, so it will be interesting to see if they are still there later today. If not, I am a patient man and am looking forward to the day I can blast down that hill unimpeded.
