Tips:

Park at the first lot, and you can get the most riding time out of the park. Most of the park is open fields planed for the wildlife. Ride around the fields when planted, but when cut it is ok to cross. If you ride all the way to the end of the peninsula, there is a small beach. Not much shade in the heat of summer, but spring and fall are lovely. Good winter riding if it isn't windy. About 6 miles of riding.

Note: this is a managed hunting area, so check before riding in hunting season.
