It's a little confusing now, but improvements and signage are ongoing. It is a directional track, and at some point I ended up in the same direction as bikes, turned around and took a different trail (part of Intermediate also I think?), but eventually "created" a loop that got me back to my car. At the point where I could see the VFW on the right, I went through the woods there. The Geitner trail is at the back past the building, and soon thereafter I joined up to the Hickory Springs Loop trail on the right (to get out of the sun of the asphalt Geitner Trail). I intended to do the complete Intermediate Loop, but part of it is for bikes only due to a fast downhill section. Good views of the lake, and a moderate workout hike close to home.
