Question Carnegie additions?

Did anyone ever hear any more about Carnegie planning on making some additions (with the wheeler's help) to the park?

I went out to Carnegie a few months back, mostly a place to take the family for a day trip, or a test run on a new setup. Frank Raines is not much further down the road. My impression of Carnegie was that with some work it could be a decent place to spend a day for light wheel'n. I would be willing to lend a hand to improve the park. It would be nice to setup a trail through the creek bed, basically from one end of the park to the other, with large size boulders thrown in for challenge. The obstacle course needs a lot of TLC. The biggest problem I had with the 4x4 obstacle course was all the kids on bikes. The OC is the only designated 4x4 area of the park, but I had to dodge a lot of kids and a lot of evil looks from parents, because I was too close to their kids. Not to mention the park has a designated 'kid' area.

How is Carnegie compared to Frank Raines? I've always heard of it but never check it out. Also, where exactly is it coming from the Oakland Side.

One of these sundays I'll have to head out there with the wife her dirtbike and my stock XJ.

Drop her and the dirt bike off and do a little wheeling <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

If you exit 580 at the Vasco exit goto the right onto Vasco. Follow Vasco for a while and it will dead end onto Tesla. Turn left onto Tesla and follow it for a while. It will go over the hills and you will see the park on the righthand side.

I live off the First Street exit (one exit before Vasco) and I rarely go to Carnegie. Usually just to test something out. The valley floor is about 3 miles long(?) and four wheelers are limited to it. There isn't a whole lot for us there. The obstacle course has a small basic frame twister, but not much else.

I find it irritating that the 4x4 section is not closed off to the bikes though. Typically the bikes come down there and use the small hill available to us as a jump. Usually getting pissed at us for being there.
