Trail-Specific Questions

Question Title

* 23. Jud Wiebe: Are you in favor of a reroute on the west side of the Jud Wiebe to improve trail sustainability (user conflict, erosion, user experience)? The reroute would improve sight lines, reduce the grade, and introduce more grade reversals*. See image below this question to view a possible reroute example.

*Grade reversals are a change in trail grade from climbing to descending, then return to climbing which aid in drainage and help to manage users speed.
