I had mixed feelings while riding this trail system. I found both trailheads and chose to park at the larger park at the north end. Having picked up a hand drawn map at a LBS I had a general idea of the place. However riding around the park looking for a main trailhead or any kind of signs I found none. So I just started making my way up the hill via jeep roads, etc. It seems the higher I went the more bike tracks I saw, not sure how they got up there. Not sure there is 20 miles of trail here, I rode for over two hours and only had a little over 9, but only seen 3 other riders on a nice Saturday afternoon. There are some great singletrack trails up higher on the hill, Buzzard, 5 gallon and a few others were a lot of fun, the Ridge Trail is a pretty technical challenge due to all the volcanic rock it runs over/through. Views of the surrounding town and Klamath Lake are great. There were several indications that some trail work has been recently done here and I even found a new trail that dead-ended were the work party stopped. If you lived here you could have the trails memorized within a couple rides, but a few, even small signs would be nice for us out-of-towners.
