Anyone been riding in Fish Creek Park? Calgary, Alberta?

I'm fairly new to the sport of mountain biking. I have strong legs, as I play soccer about 4 times a week, and I am looking for some good single track trails trails in Fish Creek. I ventured around Votiers Flats from the parking lot off Elbow drive, but I could not find to many single track around there and most of the bridges are closed. If anyone knows any good single track in Fish Creek I'd like to hear about them. I know that Fish Creek is a huge park I just don't know where to go. I also would like a printable map of Fish Creek, especially the West side. The one on the government site is a bit small.
Thank You

Not to much there any more after the floods last year. There was some between Macleod Trail and Elbow drive on the south edge of Fish Creek. But I'm pretty sure the floods wreck everything.

Are you in that end of the city? There is a bunch of fun stuff in Bowmont, Edworthy, and 12 Mile out in the NW of the city.

If you are in Fish Creek, I highly reccomend jumping a fence and sitting at 'Raven Rocks' - coolest view in the city.

Cowtown represent! Indeed, Votier's is not a good place to start, since most, if not all the bridges are gone. For the singletrack, you need to hit Bebo Grove, at the end of 24th St. S.W. Just about all the trails are intact at that end. I think there might even be some new stuff. From Bebo, you can easily put together a decent ride. If you like, I can show you around the next time I get down there.
