Papa Fun and me rode it Saturday morning on a splendid fall day. My opinion will get beat-up im sure but that`s ok.
I think that we all need to "ride it in" and there are already lines forming. The vegetation will grow back and erosion will surely occur as the trail is steep. The grade reversals will divert water for sure and will "soften" over a very short time turning into jumps.
The wide trail will go away and within a year i will predict a very fun,tech trail will emerge. It will not be the same but it isn`t bad. If you go ride it just keep in mind that in a very short time, probably just 1 season the bitc#$@% will stop except for the usual interdwebs.
I guess the most enjoyable thing about the new Kitsuma is we did it as an out-n-back and going back up the trail is much more do-able now....
So it`s not as bad as everyone is saying it is..go ride it and form your own opinion.
