Lots of fire roads and double track with some singletrack thrown in for fun. Not to much elevation but enough for beginner to intermediate riders.

Summary:
This was my first MTB trail ever. I don't have anything to compare it to yet, but I can tell you if you're a beginner you will definitely enjoy this. It's not too difficult, just a few hills thrown in, almost all easy stuff. However, there's enough rough terrain for a beginner to someone even intermediate to enjoy it. It's a very relaxing atmosphere. Enjoy!

Recommended Route:
I went in without a trail map, it's not too big.

Summary:
This is NOT the place for anyone who is past the beginner level and is looking for an intense ride. However, it is a great place for beginners to learn technique and there are some beautiful places to stop and take in the beauty of nature. I have read the other reviews and am scratching my head. The trails that you are not supposed to go on are CLEARLY marked, the rangers are very nice, and once you are done riding you can pop into town and get a beer at the Black Cow! I used to live 1 mile from the park and would use it to keep in shape. It's easily accessible and you can get a decent cardio workout. There are plenty of sidetrails to find if you are patient and take the time.

Recommended Route:
Look at the map available at the parking area. Look for side trails to pop off onto. DO NOT go on trails marked for hikers only. People on these trails are not expecting bikers to come flying around the corner. Also-look out for horses. They spook.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Gordon College-good technical stuff
Bradley Palmer-easy place or beginners

Summary:
There's ok cross country trails for the family. But the whole park is very small with little elevation change. Plus 1/2 of it is off limits to bikers, but they don't put any signs up to tell you what is and what isn't allowed. Would not recommend this unless you live close to it.
