Having to dismount twice is a buzzkill...I'll be climbing Newport Coast instead.
That's not the section I am talking about. That's around the BackBay. I have rode that section the past couple of days and done the dismount thing twice. Actually FOUR times since I went back that way too! I agree that it's a buzzkill but it's better than climbing for me!

Looking at the signs today more closely it is the Peters Canyon Trail that is closing for 6 months. It appears to be right around the Skating Rink on Barranca and winding around towards The District. Perhaps they are finally going to complete that section so that you won't need to ride on Harvard the couple miles or so to link the two paths!
