Go to the back of the park, down the large set of wooden steps. Follow that single track up to the 2 track and take that out to yates. Go across the river and Road, go in thru the cutout in the gate into the back of Bloomer park.
I agree with this. Did it a few weeks ago, went from river bends to Holland ponds. I did not know where holland ponds would lead, but happily it lead to yates and then just across the road to bloomer.
On the way back I tried to get back into river bends through the day site (fishing area off ryan rd). Found a board walk that I rode. Over a wooden bridge and up some steps and that seemed to lead me into the firing range, so I went a different way and ended up behind the nature center building. I talked to a guy at the nature center area and he said that the first route is safe - people at the firing range would have to be shooting 45 degrees from where they are supposed to. I have not been back to check it out again.
Also, were is that bunker out at river bends? Is there a marker for it?
