what this dude said. there are A LOT of hidden trails there! i've been there over a dozen times and found new trails each and every time. heck i even took the jeep on some of the quad trails. there is even a section on the green trail that if you run it a diffrent way can be interesting. along the backside of the rock quarry is fun too ( by the water)

Had a fun time....didn't get to see mission impossible....every time i mentioned it to someone i just got the brush off. They are redoing there trail marking system so the map was really useless and nothing had names which sucked. It was not what i was expecting....the quarry was fun and there were some random hills that were fun but with only two of us we moved really quick and actually ended up cutting the trip short and coming home early out of boredom.

You missed a lot of trails if you came home out of boredom. Did you run pink or purgatory? There's more to the park than just the green trail and sand dunes.

Those trail names no longer exist....they are working on renaming everything so it's all just a free for all at this point....that said i believe we did hit them (based on youtube videos i have seen)I know we hit the entire orange trail as that was still marked, we spent a lot of time in the quarry, we went all over in the woods behind the quarry but it had recently been logged which made it sort of difficult to get around.

I had fun and would and would definitely go back....it just wasn't quit what i expected. I am sure we missed a couple things but i bet we seen most of the really fun full size stuff.
