This section eliminates a two-way bottle neck on the top end or Rat Trap by extending Rattus Maximus from its intersection with Double Crosser all the way up to 4 Corners (intersection of Speedy Gonzalez with Rat Trap). The new trail winds up a gully on the opposite side of the ridge from Upper Rat Trap. Please click the “trails” tab above and view the latest map for orientation. We will update that map to add our new trail in a day or two. Here are a couple pics of “first treads” on this new trail.
We designed and built this primarily to handle uphill traffic. Rattus Maximus now provides a very nice climb all the way from the bottom of the system to 4 Corners. Eventually, Rat Trap will provide a rollicking descent from 4 Corners all the way down to intersect with the Maze. Check The new line out tomorrow.
We now have two full crews on the ground, moving dirt 40 hours a week. They are working on a nice long loop in an just around the corner from . . . ? Stay tuned for more new developments soon.
