A small state forest that is bisected by a fire road. Full of winding singletrack through the woods with a lot of short, semi-steep ups and downs. A few stream crossings and plenty of log crossings keep it interesting for beginners. The trails are also used by equestrians, but the place is usually empty.
From the parking area, if you follow the leftmost trail you can find a perimeter loop back to the parking lot. Throughout the middle of the loop is a network of crisscrossing trails that can keep you occupied for a couple hours. It's impossible to get lost or accidentally wander outside the park, so you can just ride around as you see fit.

When Lee's Ridge Rd turns into Lover's Lane, keep right (which will keep you on Lee's Ridge Rd). Look for Whitney State Forest Sign about 1/2 a mile down on the right. There is a small parking area there.
