      Crandall Park has a lot of trail compressed into a small area which makes it a bit confusing to navigate. Maps of rides in this location typically look like a bowl of spagetti. The park is located near a major interstate highway which can be helpfun with navigation as the highway can be heard from about 1/3 of the trails so this can help orient riders.
