      Access Info:
      The main trailhead is at approximately 1827 W Hayden Lake Rd, Champlin, MN (this isn't a real address; it just works with Google Maps). From 169, head west on West Hayden Lake Road. At the Y in the road, stay left, following the brown "County Park" signs. The trailhead is on the left and the parking lot is on the right.
