The White Clay Creek Valley forms the core of the Preserve. The park varies from steep to rolling terrain with some flat bottomland. There are many historical points of interest in and around the park. The park adjoins White Clay Creek State Park of Delaware. A hiking trail, over three miles in length, runs the entire length of the northern portion of the Preserve and ties in with trails in the White Clay Creek Preserve in Delaware. Peltier and New Peltier trails are bicycle trails. Bicyclists also use the roads in and along the borders of the Preserve. White Clay Creek is stocked several times a season and is considered one of the best trout streams in the area. Special delayed harvest and artificial lures only regulations apply to the Middle Branch of White Clay Creek from Good Hope Road south to its confluence with the East Branch. Any bait may be used on the East Branch. Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission laws apply. An 8-mile equestrian trail traverses the entire length of the northern portion of the Preserve. Cross-country skiers may use the hiking and bridle trails when snow cover permits.
