“Using trail-feel to head through the rat's maze makes for a great (although short) ride.”— Frank Maguire

Family Friendly There's not too much elevation, but the trails are rocky. The trails to the west of the parking area are a little easier.
Need to Know
I then just decided to follow whatever trail seemed to be the most worn in and see where it would take me. There were a couple of forest road crossings that took a little more head-scratching and one bit where I popped out on the campground loop and had to consult the map, but otherwise I was pretty happy with the way I transitioned from one trail to the next.
The area isn't that big, and most trails in any given area seem to generally flow towards the next area of trail. At about the 2 o'clock position (if we are thinking about the ride as a clock face) there is a pretty cool rock outcropping that the ride traverses multiple times, and there are some cool optional lines.
For most of the ride, you'll sense that the lake and the surrounding fields are generally to your right, so you'll have a sense of where you are and won't feel too lost.
