The park itself is an oasis. I give it 3 stars for two reasons: 1. This is a perfect park for a cross bike, and 2. This is a great place for families with kids - NOT for hard core off-road riders. Only one of the trails is open to bikes. Albeit it's a very short .25 miles long. It was built by IMBA and MORE a few years ago to show the park that sustainable mountain bike trails can be put in there. There is hope for future multi use trails, but for now, fire roads and the short trail I mention are it.
None like this in the area

Was forced to go on a camping trip here with a Backpacking class I was enrolled in (stupid community college) so I brought my 29er. Long gravel roads with nothing much to see other than trees. There were a few lungbuster climbs but it was in gravel which needless to say, sucked. I guess it would be a good cyclocross path? It gets an overall "meh" from me.

Just an update to reiterate that these trails are just fire roads. All singletrack trails are hiking only. The forest is very scenic, but this is a ride for a family looking to have a good time and not a ride to challenge an experienced mountain biker.
Similar would be the Potomac river towpath from DC to Harper's Ferry.

This trail goes straight through very pretty hardwood forest. However, it is not really a trail at all. This network consists of a few fire roads that have, as of early 2007, been freshly graveled with small to medium sized blue stone. This trail is definitely not single track and the surface is not ideal for mountain biking, but it does offer quick access for bikers in the area.
