A lot of fun, most of the trails are pretty short but they are still really good. Anyone pretty much who has a bike can ride here. The singletrack trails are really fun, a lot of them connect up to other trails so there is tons of chances for exploring. There is a lot of trails in the actual park area and a bunch that connect to them and run out of the immediate park area. Just be careful of hikers and wildlife. Especially on the tight singletrack trails. Also be aware that sometimes motorcycles use the trails (even though they arn't supposed to) so watch out for them too.

If you want to ride the easy stuff in the park, turn left immediatly once u enter and there is a nice flat trail behind the houses, there are some other little trails in this area too that are flat. If you want to get more intermediate turn right once u enter the park and follow the trail down into the sort of field area then turn right... the right turn is a bit hidden so you have to look for it. If you continue on the trail before you turn right it is quite a fast trail, more like a fireroad trail. It goes down to beaver creek where you then cross the creek over a bridge. From there you keep going up to an old bus storage station. Then you can turn left onto the Ravine Cutline trail.
If you wana ride the more extreme stuff then you will probably have to explorer for your self or find a local who knows the area. (Email me and I will ride with you any time) :-)

Everything is here - calf stretching climbs, gnarly downhills, single track and easy open trails. Skill levels range from easy to moderate/difficult. If you live in town - you know where the parks is. If you are visiting - ask any local. It is very under utilized by mountain bikers.

Customer Service

The system has lots of trails. A little looking can reward you with great single track.

This park offers begginer riding to intermediate for most connecting trails. There is some expert type trail and some jumps/stunts (you will know when you find them). For a beginner (fast, short , trail), From the gate turn left and follow the trail behind the housing. Tis trail come out on Beaver Dr. For another Begginer trail, From the gate turn right and follow the trail West and then South. You will come to two trais one going South one West. the West is a gravel road that leads around the outside of the town, then hooks up with a packed trail. Follow this trail out until you come to an open area, Grassy and gravel. The trail goes left or right. Left takes you out to Highway 43 path. Right takes you back into uptown Whitecourt. You can search all the shhots and paths off these trails, you might find some interesting terrain, some just ends. There are lots of connecting trails in the park, Explore it, there is approx 20 km of connecting trail from Centenial onto cutlines and along a creek. I give the actual park a 3 star rating, but a 4 star if you explore and find the other trails, well worth looking around for the off trails.

From Traffic lights uptown turn left if heading West, right if heading East. Turn into the town follow straight until Beaver Dr. Turn right and follow, look left for main gates, Gate is marked. It is near St. Joseph school.
