Trails definitely seem to be designed for equestrian usage. Some trail markers are missing, I did get turned around a little bit towards the end of my loop. But I did find some nice ruins as a result.

Be advised that the gate gets locked BEFORE sunset. I had to have a sheriff's deputy dispatched to let me out.

I loved it. I do think the loop is more like 10 miles. Views of the river. Fun to explore. Going back again. Update: there is a 5 mile loop and a 10 mile loop with short cuts between. Saw a black wolf looking dog running with the pigs.

Nice wide trails, but I found it very hard to follow the trail markers. Very nice along the Myaka River.
