    Use standard mobile touch gestures to enlarge map, etc. Handy while in the park to keep track of where you are...

    ENJOY!

    All the trails are doable for novices, there is no freeride stuff or anything way over your head at the 909. It's full of short but steepish rolling hills, be prepared for lots of granny gear climbing good for building strong legs and lungs, after all that's what xc is all about. If you want to try some of the more technical stuff try fongs way or anything down in the gut on the east end, the more you ride them the more you improve. If something looks a little too difficult or steep (up or down), just walk it. And even seasoned riders dab their foot or get off sometimes, so don't get discouraged.

    Afraid not >> NO GPX available.
    This was an "artistic" collab with the local park rep.

    Ask around, I am sure there are a lot of locals GPSing their rides...

    I found these online - but if anyone cares to send me their GPX files - I'd love to update the map with more precise info - there are a lot of trail intersections on the east side of the park (old fire roads and such) which still makes it confusing!

    There's a few other ways to deal with the fact that there are some unmarked logging roads on the east side...You can explore and look for the active trails, most are marked with colored disks that match caffeinery's map...Or ask myself or others @ fatsinthecats.com for a tour or route suggestions etc.
