Are you sure? Hard Rock would be cliched but maybe the world is ready for a Glam Rock map. Or is this actually a preexisting place name?

This is actually the place name! I am not yet at the point where I can go the way of the Swampfox and start making up crazy map names.

I'm still waiting for orienteering at Cheesequake.

I definitely want to orienteer at Cheesequake.

@Clem: Remember Michael Stipe mentioning Cheesequake during that REM concert (at the amphitheater about 5 miles from it)? He said he didn't believe it was a Native American word...

Well, apparently it has been adopted a little more broadly, for different applications, since then. (Although that may have been the case back then for all I know...)

So the terrain is what, mysteriously full of gypsum boulders that haven't eroded away to nothing?

I'm going to just assume that Peggy and Clem have conspired to fool me with an elaborate Cheesequake hoax.

Does Cheesequake have some forest or is it just park?

I’m not sure, but I know it’s always budding out.

There's definitely a bunch of wooded area in the park, though I don't know about the quality. The park website makes it sound pretty nice. There's also a fair bit of what looks like salt marsh.
