Summary:
I had TONS of fun!! There were lots of jumps and obsticles and it was a challenge, but it was fun at the same time. I did the skill park and it was HARD. White Clay state park is THE BEST EVER!!!!

Recommended Route:
I recommend Bryan's Farm because it was so cool. At first when you are at the parking lot turn left. Because if you go straight you will do Bryans farm backwards and that is hard!!!

Summary:
I have just starting riding here recently and can't get enough. I don't know what some of the older reviews are relating to. It looks like maybe they have done significant upgrades in recent years. Trails are very well maintained. There is like 38 miles of trails according to someone who works for the park. Miles and miles of single track heaven. Swooping, curving bliss. Nothing is very technical so you can just ride and ride. The trails are such that anyone of various levels can ride and have a great time. The better you are, the faster you ride, the more fun you have. Every once in a while you come across a log to ride on. The there is the corkscrew, one of my favorites. Lastly, there is a special skills section with built tressels, see-saws, log planks, etc.
Aerobic difficulty is as you make it. Ride harder for more workout. Ride easier for light workout. Up hill sections are like the downhills - twisty and swoopy. No killers

Recommended Route:
Parking area off the end of Possum Hollow Road before you get to the bird refuge.

Summary:
This trial made me fall back in love in mountain biking after years out of the sport. I went from not riding to waking up early to get a ride in here before work. I've sinced moved to Texas (mountain bike hell) and I miss this place every single day. White Clay Creek is so well-maintained and well-designed, the flow is just incredible. The soil is also just moist enough to allow you to carve and bob and weave to your heart's content. This summer I rode Sun Valley, Idaho, and other highly-touted Western spots and didn't think they were any more fun than White Clay. The only thing wrong with this place is that it's not in Texas, and I wish there were more of it (after a while you're doing the same loops over and over).
It's not inherently technical, but you can make it technical by doing all the manmade obstacles and going really fast.

Recommended Route:
My favorite section is the Northeast side of David English going clockwise. Whoop-dee-do heaven.

Summary:
This park is like that beautiful girl (or guy) you dated who turned out to be totally boring in bed. You may have gotten sweaty but at the end you'll have forgotten the whole episode. This place is the anti-french creek; smooth and narrow compared to rough and wide. As mentioned, this is a great place to bring a newbie. No need to pick a line here, theres only one option. The rollers can be fun but it gets old quick. If I had a single speed this would be a great place to bring it. The skills trail and all of its man-made obstacles are pretty cool though.
