Route: Unknown trails

Followed the maze of mountain biking trails to the main hiking trail (dropping in at the muddy area), the proceeded to the summit. The mountain biking trails were dry and in good shape, while the hiking trail had a bit of mud in that normally muddy section.

The mountain biking trails were quite nice to jog, though navigating them could be difficult if you're unfamiliar with the terrain.
