Fairly technical, lots of roots, short steep climbs and similar decsends, but nothing too difficult. It's a very short trail system.

Summary:
As was mentioned, its short and technical with lots of roots and sections of trail that need maintenance as trees are down. White Trail is the Multi Use trail and its basically a loop with a road traversing it where you can pickup small trails to break up the ride.

Recommended Route:
Started at the Park and Ride Parking lot off of Parkway exit 120 and headed to the left entrance on White trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Six Mile Run, Chimney Rock

Summary:
this park is basically just a way for the local police too harass people that are out to have a nice day. their were 4 rent a cops on a stretch of road within the park that could not have been more then a mile in length. And they were busy. pulling over and harassing park attendees for anything they could. the kind of people that write you a ticket for your brake light being out. while I sat there awaiting my own ticket I watched them pull over 1 out of 4 cars, one officer was directing traffic and would randomly stick his head in vehicles as they were passing by. shameful behavior at what is supposed to be a public resource.

If you are looking for a nice relaxing day, I would suggest going somewhere else.

PS. don't go swimming, the water is dirty and my skin broke out horribly the next day.

Recommended Route:
none, this is deff not a biking park

Summary:
great trails if you are close by and looking for a quick hour workout. You will need to do the 2.5/3.0 mile loop 2 to 3 times for decent workout. I like the singletrack, it suits my style, logpiles, fast, tight and curvy with quick ascents and descents. Ride it in both directions to freshen things up.

Recommended Route:
White trail is the only one to use.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Huber Woods, Hartshorne, Alliare, Rutgers Eco-Trail System.

Summary:
i live in the area, am new to the mtb scene, so i find it more than enough for now. some fast descents, logs, climbs, and if u like roots, this is the place 4 u!! the trick with the "quake" is to hit the trail from different directions, and spots, using the paved road that goes between both sides of the white trail. it is only 3.5 miles round trip, if u keep hitting from different directions, it keeps it fresher.also, hit the other sice of the park, like museum road, to break it up. check out the deer, birds, other bikes, etc. if u live close, like i do, great place to have nearby if time is an issue. bottom line, check youre ego at the gate, and just take the park 4 what it is, and u will have a really nice time.also, u can park in commuter lot on weekends and holidays. also, quik check and d&d at the traffic light near the commuter lot also....yummy

Recommended Route:
white trail only legal one in park, but go back and forth, and it seems like a different trail

Other recommended trails in the same area:
huber. hartshorne...both nr tuff....for easy family rides, u got the hudson, and the hook

Summary:
Lots of roots, log obstacles, quick elevation changes. If it's your first time, look for some place flat first just so you can get used to your bike.

Overall, a good workout if you live really close.

Recommended Route:
There's only one (the while/multi-use trail).

I think its $10 to park weekends, $5 on weekdays - from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Free otherwise, or so they say.

I park near at my bros house about a mile away (good stretching before hitting the trail).
