Close it to through traffic!  I just found my new bike route.

a neighborhood not a shortcut!

Corral Trail Plus

I just enjoyed some wicked south lake trails.  No biggie.
Corral Trail has been in the spotlight recently.  It lived up to the hype!

Canal Trail to Heather Farms

I spun down to Heather Farm and back along the canal trail.  I love these paths, but this intersection shows a lack of commitment.  When the path needed to cross a major road they simply gave up!

Beautiful dead-end path requires a large detour to cross the road.
