The parking field is a little confusing bc it says "authorized vehicles only." I parked there along with many others and nothing was said so I guess that's okay. The trail starts across the field. There are lots of trails and it's pretty easy to get lost. I ended up in a woman's front yard at one point and then turned around. I had to backtrack to get to the car until I saw "cars" spray painted in orange on a tree. The trails aren't marked very well.
To find the trail you have to go back the road that says authorized vehicles only....it's at the back of the field. The trails are nice single track with some roots exposed. Nice running or mountain bike. We got caught in a storm while we were there...so had to leave quickly. Looking forward to coming back. There are more trails on the other side of the road which come out 15 feet down on Muse on the other side of McClintock Road. they wrap up to the dog park....
update we have been back...in the sunshine. And these trails are nice. The penguin loop is a little harder with nice downhill. But what goes down must go up. Very nice trails. Not to rutted up either. They are making a MTB trail that goes the entire way around the park. Can't wait to try that trail.
