I drove to a State Park near my home yesterday and was pretty excited to see a trail map(there is nothing online?). I borrowed my Son-in-law's Trek hybred this morning to see what I thought of it. I wasn't ecstatic about it like I was yesterday. I'm not a laid back person, I was being extra extra careful not to get lost, and it was somewhat stressful for me. The trails I parked near have no markings, I came to the same marked trail twice in opposite directions. Went down a steep hill and had to walk it when I came back up. The gearing on the hybred is 22 front and 30 rear, so I'm not sure an actual mountain bike would be any different. Had to stop twice to catch my breath and slow down my heart. Got a real hard workout for only an hour ride. Came to one spot where I could see the road almost straight down about 400 feet. I drove home past that spot and I think I saw I sign that said no bikes-so I may not have even been on a bike trail. Did my exploring, didn't get lost. Definitly not a manic moment, but I am sure I will go back as soon as I have a day to do it again.
