Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 17 This is a WILDLIFE AREA (WA)! by In search of tasty animals...
This area is dedicated to the pursuit of wildlife enjoyment, not mountain biking, camping or dirt biking. The trails are NEVER marked in a WILDLIFE AREA as they assume that people hunting and hiking know where they are & what they are doing. Most trails in WILDLIFE AREAS are either fire breaks/road or animal trails. Human development is kept to a minimum. There are no sources of drinking water, restrooms, camp spaces, RV hook-ups, trash cans, etc. Be forewarned that hunters are legally HUNTING with rifles, shotguns and archery equipment. It also has months of closure - usually from January through opening day of archery deer season. Access during hunting seasons - deer, turkey, pig, quail, pheasant - may be limited to only those with hunting reservations from Dept of Fish & Game.
March 3 Need trail maps
I found a trail sign or two along the road of 128 but I wondered where the other trails were and what the boundaries of the park were, etc. That is my biggest complaint about it is that I am having a hard time discovering it all not knowing its boundaries and where all the trails are.
