Back Story

As I hope some of you know or are going to soon find out that White's Woods is a recreational park full of trails that the public can use from dawn to dusk in any season. It originally was owned by the Railroad companies in the 1950's or 60's then the land was sold to a real state agency. It consisted of 250 acres that was then given to White Township by the heirs of White Estates for recreational use by the terms of “Project 70 Land Acquisition and Borrowing Act” of 1964 . Today, there are over ten trails that the public can use along with campsites and a connection with the IUP CO-OP park along with other locations such as the IUP farm. There is also a 5k or 3k marked trail that goes through various terrain. There is a frisbee golf course as well.
