Trail is mostly single track with some roads. The west trail starts near the back of the bathrooms and crosses a foot bridge at Cedar Branch Creek. Then go R/T and follow the trail till you come to the Field. Stay left on Field until you come to the parking lot for the field. At this point you can either follow the road to the R/T or look across the field to the right a little (North-East) and take the Side Trail to the Creek Ford Crossing (Bear Creek) (I would take side trail). If you take the road just follow it to top of hill where it dead ends and look to your R/T. It switch-backs and you can follow it down to Creek Ford Crossing (Bear Creek). The Creek Ford Crossing is wide and deep and has a very sandy bottom. It is hard to impossible to cross on a bike. To get to the better trails on the other side you are going to have to get your shoes wet and full of sand (A bridge is severely needed here). Once on the other side go R/T and go uphill, follow trail till you make your way back down to Bear Creek. Go R/T and follow the creek till you come to the falls. Great place to rest and take a dip. I think there is a small loop at this end but if you don't see it just head back and follow the creek all the way back to the Creek Ford Crossing. Cross the creek and follow either trail back to the parking lot.
I will not ride these trails again until they add a bridge or make trails on the South side of Bear Creek all the way to the falls and make a crossing at the falls. I don't care to trash my bike shoes and ride with sandy wet feet. This place has potential to be great but for now it's not.

I only rode a little of the East trails and got lost because they are not marked. They look like they could be better but need more markings.

Rider questions

Q: could a beginner handle this trail?
A: Yes, a beginner could handle the yellow trail. I am in the beginner phase and I did the yellow trail a few weeks ago without any problem, though, I didn't do the loops, just the out and back to the falls.
