    It really is a shame. There are so many interesting elements to this park, given proper maintenance it could really be a great ride. However either I am very wrong in my belief in my map reading skills, or this trail system has fallen into misuse. after consulting the main (and as far as I can tell only) map at the entrance, I attempted to drive closer to the trail head to find parking. However due to the curious way the park is set up, I wound up going for a loop around the park and then back to the entrance. Consulting the map again I decided to ignore what it said and this eventually lead me to an area to park. After mounting up and looking for the trail head I spied a small bit of single track off to the side of the road, and decided to see where it lead. After following the single track for about fifty feet, I was dumped out onto another service road. Bummer. After searching for the trail again I started following a fire road hoping it would lead to the trail, but instead it just turned out to be a horse only trail. turning around I spotted a single track off to the side and after following it about thirty feet into the thick nettles and underbrush filling this part of the park, I cam to a single track crossroads, along with the only mtb blaze I saw it really is a shame.

Unfortunately it didn't indicate which way I was to go. The left fork lead through some pleasant trails, eventually abandoning me in the middle of a small stream. Literally, the trail just went into the stream with nothing on the other side. So I turn around and try the right fork,. No good there either, after about a quarter mile of the nicest path I saw all day, It dumped me in a grassy field with no directions to the next leg. Needless to say it was a frustrating, and itchy, day.
