White Tank Mountain Regional Park offers approximately 25 miles of excellent shared-use trails of varied difficulty. Overnight backpacking, with a permit, is allowed in established backcountry campsites. Day hikes can provide some breathtaking views of the mountains and panoramas of the valley below. Horseback and mountain bike riders are welcomed, although caution is stressed as some of the trails may be extremely difficult. Shared-use trails range in length from 0.9 mile to 7.9 miles and range in difficulty from easy to strenuous.
In addition, there are 2.5 miles of pedestrian-only trails. These include two short trails that are hard-surfaced and barrier free.
