Varied. Lots of nice single track and hills. Several technical sections and water crossings. Best to ride early or late. Can be busy with hikers.

Summary:
It's people like the last poster who ruin things for everyone else. He rides illegally and boasts about it in the Internet. Real smart. Makes mountain bikers look good in the eyes of others and give ammo to those who wish to ban them everywhere.

Recommended Route:
Do not ride here.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Or any other place where it is not legal.

Summary:
There's some sweet riding in Washington's Crossing (WC). It's got short, steep climbs, a few nice drops, and some challenging technical sections. I've been riding here once or twice a month for the last 5 months. I've never seen a park ranger, and I've never been hassled by anyone. My crew gives walkers the right of way. We've never had a problem. Yes, most of the trails do prohibit bikes. However, I can't see how we're doing any damage to the trails. I'll keep riding WC.

Summary:
I grew up and still live next to the park. I used to ride there when it was legal. But some foolish rides ruined it for everyone. DO NOT RIDE HERE! If you are active in biking I sugest writing to our congressman, because I have already tryed to talk with the rangers. And well honestly they are not nice men. Actually it dos'nt matter that you can't ride there since they brought in the bulldozers(and they told me they were'nt making any more trails!). Once again DONT RIDE HERE! YOU COULD LOSE YOUR BIKE TO THE STATE!

Recommended Route:
No route. It is illegal to ride at wash crossing!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
ANYTHING BUT WASH XING

Summary:
you aren't supposed to ride here, but stay away from the park area and there are plenty of trails. try not to go when people are hiking around. ride responsibly. there are plenty of quick sections to get you going..

Recommended Route:
drop in near the firehouse off of 29. it opens up in the back
