Got Dad to drop Lillian (xc-racer4) and I off at the Silver Slope map, and then we took the new dirt biking trail (built in the last 2.5 years ish) across the north face of Mount Ida to above the new public cemetery. We bushwacked down from the trail to the powerlines, then through a bit more bush onto a trail I did not no existed, down along it into the "official" trail system, and then back home along the road.
Bullwinkle isn't the best built trail and wouldn't be great for mountain biking - a lot of straight up/down the hillside, but it is pretty good for running.
TLDR; connect Silver Slope with New Cemetary on trail except around 400m of bushwacking where the logs are cut out already.
Starting to blister on my left foot again, but never got above a 1/10 on plantarfasciitis, so that's an improvement.
