Ravensburg State Park

I took a little hike at Ravensburg State Park a few weeks ago, and while I had my trusty MST maps with me, I have some trouble with the trail.
After I couldn't find the MST, and having gotten to the top of the hill on another path, I vaguely remembered that the trail had been relocated. Pretty much, the loop I wanted to take was quite different, and I wound up bushwhacking on the remnants of the pre-relocation.
When I was looking for the trailhead, initially, I easily found the sign posts, famously well-placed. Trouble is, there was no sign. Now, while I understand that the overseers probably thought this would be a good method to keep people from hiking the "bad" section of trail, it would have been nice if they mentioned the relocation. That would have made my day a lot less troublesome.
Anyway . . . the park is beautiful, and I'd recommend it, even though there are no vistas, at least that I found.
Before you go, though, remember that no trail is static, and bring your compass and good sense with you :-)
