Access Issues: Yes. A SMALL section of land is now private at the bottom of the old trail from the old railroad bed. The owner of the property has moved the trail approx. 30 yards down the railroad bed to his property line and has cut a new trail that joins the old one. They have even place a sign to point you to the new trail, SO please use it and thank them if you see them.
