These are just a few that I grabbed off of the Facebook page really quick. There is plenty more. Some mud too, but that all looks the same. My dad and another staff member were just out there yesterday talking to an equipment operator about a few things. It sounds like some new rock trails will be being built. One that I am pretty excited about is a rock pile on the side of the cliffwall for about 300 yards.

Thanks! I was out this weekend and got a good start on a map. We also opened up some old trails and made some new ones. I also saw where the equipment operator had been building up some rocks for obstacles.

I have been there a couple times and I have enjoyed myself. I know several people
have made comments regarding Kelly, I don't understand why, but that's ok.\
If you havent been there, go. The pricing schedule looks better organized. Easier to
follow. I went one Friday night and camped, cost $20.....just to camp, couldnt do
anything.

Best of luck to the uh....same owners and new venture. Add a small store where I can
buy AM coffee, breakfast sandwhich, and stuff......

The plan is for the park to be open Jan 7 and 8. We are still working on getting everything up to speed. We will have a map ready by That weekend.

Looks like there is good potential. Any plans to get a map together of the trails/obstacles and level of difficultly?
