    There are two trails in Lake Whitney State Park. Both are hike and bike trails. The Two Bridges Trail is a good, easy trail to ride. My wife and I rode it this weekend multiple times. We are novice riders and it was a fun but short ride at .9 miles. If you start counter clockwise, there is an offshoot trail that drops down a creek bed then back up a short climb. That trail will take you to the full hook up camp ground which is where we were staying in our motohome so it was convenient and the most tech part of the trail. There is also a branch trail that goes down to the edge of the lake and you can ride right at the water's edge for a ways. It was a fun trail that we will do again but nothing challenging to anyone who has been riding a while.

    The second hike/bike trail, Towash Forest, is worthless in my opinion. It is a 6' wide (brush hog width) grass trail that does not go through any forest at all and is all out in the open. Only rode it once and never again.
