This has to be one of my all-time favorite trail systems and in the tiny state of Delaware of all places. The first thing that strikes you about the trails are how well-maintained they are. While there is an "expert" section with man-made obstacles, bridges and skinnies, the trail system is really all about flow. In the 30 miles of trail there is surprisingly good elevation change. This makes for a decent cardio workout but even better opportunity to shred at high speed with many well-placed bumps to really get some air. They've recently added a new rock garden section that, while not the most technical, is great practice for newbies and intermediates. For advanced riders there are plenty of skinnies (some highly elevated) and launch points to really air it out.
Trails are marked but there are so many intersections it's hard to follow. Middle Run and Triple loop are listed as separate trails but they are all part of White Clay Creek State Park.
