Rode the Green and Red Trails. Easy and fast singletrack, some mowed to the width of doubletrack. Not very well-worn trail, but not soft ground either. Some of the trails were mowed (July) and sprayed for poison ivy. Trail heads are well marked. I was on the Red (?) trail and it was not well-marked when it combined with and left powerlines and service roads, i.e., I couldn't follow it sometimes. I found a ribbon of tight singletrack that still had trail flags and I think was the Red trail, but it wasn't mowed and had lots of broken branches and spider webs. Saw lots of deer, and a pack of wild dogs. Bottom line: there are miles of trails here, some of which are kept clean even in the summer, but that are not ridden regularily. Get out there and ride, and tell the park manager that the trials need to be marked along there course and where they meet and leave service roads, powerlines, etc.
