CPHSP is one of my favorite places to trail run and mtn bike. There are a myriad of trails to choose from. There are flat/rolling carriage roads, climbs, downhills, and aggressive singletrack. That being said, if you are looking for jumps and/or drops then this is not the place. The more remote trails are better and tend to be less congested.
One big negative is the dog walkers (I, too, am a dog owner!!). The dog walkers here, like many public spaces, are incredibly irresponsible and don't follow the leash LAWS! I have been bitten 2x while running here and now carry mace, but EVERYONE's dog is the nicest and won't bite! If your dog is off their leash I won't slow down or give it any special consideration. Rules are created for a reason and meant to be followed. Simple as that.
