This time we parked at the central entrance, did the stub and the new route, double back to the south (with the fountain) and back. The new routing offers a lot of cool views of the creek that weren't there before, but the tradeoff is you are right next to the golf course a lot of times (and thanks to the golf course as I believe it is their land that they offered up). There is one new stairway steeper than all of the others. They are putting up a huge fence along the protected land. Apparently the loud generator doesn't bother the birds..not sure why the old trail needs to be dismantled if no one can go in there. Looks like they allow dogs on the trail now, with the good and bad that comes from that (I don't understand someone bagging up the poop and then leaving it for others to magically clean). Thanks to Sandy Perry and everyone who worked hard on this trail, the trail should be renamed for her.
