 We rode this from Old Emerald down to the west. Unless we missed something it ended in a gated community with no exit. We had to push up to get to highway #1

 I've heard you need a key from that gated community to get through. Gotta hike around at the very bottom, or turn around and climb out.

 Was just there today during a nice rain storm. We asked a guy inside if he could open it up so we could get out of the lightning. He couldn't open it with the key he had so, it's probably only the employees who can open it. This trail is not worth going down to the end. It would be awesome if you could get past that gate though.

 VERY nice trail. Goes from a steep road to flowing(mostly smooth) singletrack. Be prepared though, there's a gate at the end. I called the housing communities main office and asked if they could escort me through. Luckily they were kind enough to send a security guard with a truck to haul my bike and me to let me out the other side.(Thank God, I didn't want to climb that hill).

 I was there today, need to hike north around the fence and there is a hiking trail that takes you along the pool side of the park which then dumps you in on the road.
