Subject: Maybury running trails?

I've recently picked up trail running.  I find it leaves my body feeling much less beat up than road running and I'm nursing all sorts of little issues/over use injuries.

Do any of you run trails at Maybury?  It's so close to my house and I've been there for casual strolls but am mostly unfamiliar with the trail system.  I'm looking for something that's on the less technical side at this point in terms of a super narrow path, dodging roots/rocks, etc.  I'm not sure if there's just one main trail or several.  I see a map online but it's not terribly helpful.

Is one parking area better than others for accessing the trail system?  Any tips are appreciated!

I run out there pretty often. there are separate trails for foot traffic, bike traffic and horse traffic. I usually park at the lot of 8 mile near the horse barn. from there you can jump on the two track and access the foot traffic trails. Most everything is really well marked so its tough to get lost. There are a number of loops so you can make your run as short or as long as you'd like.

My above post should say Beck Rd. not 8 mile.

Cool, thanks Mike!  I actually got a chance to get out there yesterday but there are so many unmarked forks that don't indicate clearly which way the main trail goes.  Short of carrying a map, is there a trick to it, like always stay left at forks, or always take the widest path at a fork, or something like that?  I kept somehow ending up on the paved road which is what I'm trying to avoid these days.

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?
