Review: Once again Rider51 review is spot on. I am relatively new to mountain biking so I tend to stay to beginner/easy trails. The inner White trail is pretty forgiving with only a couple of challenging sections for me. The red outer loop however has a wide variation...flat and smooth one second, and then suddenly a rock farm with a incline or decline.
Overall a very nice place to ride. Quiet and very pretty ride

Review: May 2015 - It appears in recent years some of these trails have taken a bit of abuse and erosion, though are still in pretty good shape. The whole park has variety, but should not entirely be considered beginner/easy. The center trails tend to be the most forgiving, and long sections of single track on the red and white trails are quite clean, but various roots and a few rocks to keep things interesting. A couple rough rock gardens have grown in some sections, specifically on the north and south ends of the red trail. Nothing extreme, but beginners should be prepared, and not shy away from dismounting these areas. More skilled riders may welcome the challenge. I'm adding a few photos to show.

Otherwise, this is a nice park tucked into the woods, nearly all single track, but not too narrow, and fairly flat. Bugs can be a menace in spring-summer, so be prepared.

Review: Rode the red trail counter-clockwise. Lots of good parts, lots of muddy parts (may have been from the recent storm). You have to pay for parking during the summer, otherwise, there is free parking at the street along Rt 85.

Review: Stopped by to ride today (Saturday) but found that they are charging for parking... $7 for in state vehicles, $15 for out of state. Not sure the trails are worth the price... so I headed to Case Mountain.

Review: Fun trails. Mixed single and double track. Rode the red trail counter clockwise. What I really appreciated about this trail is the number of lines that can be taken through any given section. Well ridden trail system so the easy line is clear - but there is plenty there (rocks, roots) to make it as difficult as you want it to be. Great loop for all levels. Would certainly be a fun ride to link it with Case mountain.
