I've been to this trail system three times and still haven't covered every trail. The trails I've been on (Fawn, Black Cherry, Hershey, Rachel, High Wall, and White Oak) are pretty well maintained. Fawn is the easiest trail I've seen so far. White Oak is very challenging with its steep climbs, tons of roots both big and small, and several chunk sections. There are several switchbacks to navigate as well. I haven't found any man made jumps, berms, gaps, or other features (not counting bridges) as of yet. I hope to ride the other trails that I haven't gotten to very soon to see what they offer. There are several wooden bridges which are well maintained and some more basic wood crossings which are in good shape. They do have signage at the trailheads and signs at most intersections. It is a little difficult at times to comprehend which trail you're on. Not all the signs have arrows and they aren't facing the proper direction at times. The biggest gripe I have is the spiders. There are a bunch of them. I'm normally starting the trails around 9:30 in the morning and unfortunately I'm the one finding them all with my face. I don't think there's anything the park can do about it, it's Mother Nature and this is what she does. Hopefully the spiders will go away as the temps drop and then I can enjoy the trails more. I'd still recommend checking these trails out, come early, say 8am and clear the spiders before I get there for a change. Haha. Just kidding. I may start tying a stick to the front of the bike and clear the webs that way. There are some interesting trees here as well which have an interesting history about them. There is a placard that explains how and why they're there. I have seen hikers and joggers here. I haven't found any trash on the trails or at the main park which also has very clean restrooms and I think there is a club house (I haven't seen inside it yet). This is a pretty nice park.
