Gary, thanks for the quick reply to my post.
I think the overload trail is pretty great. I ride it a lot. However, going the opposite direction allows for slightly more manageable climbs and longer more interesting descents. I have heard people complain about how brutal those climbs are. That turns people off from riding there. The climbing could be made less brutal by reversing the direction of the trail.
I am wondering why that is something the trail stewards are against?
If proposed changes have been on hold for a decade maybe this sort of change, where you arenâ€™t altering the trail in any way but change the experience dramatically, is something to think about while all the proposed changes are being hashed out.
Regarding alternate days, I understand that nearby trails do not currently do that. Why is that a limiting factor?
