We need a Woodlands Costco and a Neiman Marcus and The Woodlands would be perfecto.

I went there today with me and my friend to lake bedias lake. Once we just started on the trail my bike gear changer broke so I had to run and hop on my friends bike pegs. Once we about half way there the path was 2-3 feet deep of murky water. The trash line m the storm was 30-50 feet up on the trees. So we left his bike there and my bike was at the entrance then we walked 100 yards through all the water. once we saw the sign to the lake we took a right. then we had to cross waist high water. They should have warnings. Was still fun

Lots of new "pirate" trails to the south and east of the original bike and loop trail. Part of me appreciates the added distance, but it has become easy to get "lost" and turn an evening run into a nighttime adventure. Some portions of these outlaw trails also cross creekbeds with little thought for erosion control.

@ Aly: It's deep, dense woods, almost no sunlight reaches you. Everywhere you're surrounded by 60-80 foot tall trees, sweetgums, pines, oaks and sycamores and a dense, hoick understory and underbrush.

I took a walk here today. I couldn't make myself leave! I had the best time and saw squirrels, bugs, birds (mainly cardinals) and even a deer!

Kerry - instead of whining about what needs to be done, how about taking the initiative and cleaning up some of that fishing line yourself.

I was surprised to see a For Sale sign for commercial development along Gosling. So close to the creek. Sweet! Maybe a WalMart?

The park and signage are great. Hope they decide to put a bridge and/or walkway in this area to connect to Creekside.

Could whoever is responsible for maintenance of the park please empty the bins (overflowing), clear the leftover fishing wire from the edge of the lake and remove the graffiti from the bench close to the entrance of Flintridge? I rescued a trapped cat fish from a lure that someone had abandoned. If you are going to fish please be responsible for your equipment and eat what you fish. Thank you

No that I'm aware of, JoAnn -- or at least, I've never seen any.

Are there Rangers and/or security within the park?
