Yup, there's plenty of single track out there, but most of it is fairly flat. In the East side there some techy stuff, but still quite tame. I enjoy riding out there for the solitude, because you can ride for close to 10 miles and not see another bike.  I haven't been out there this year though. Might be a good time to revisit.

I'm surprised it doesn't get more attention, actually.

 

Note to Throet, this is a great rehab trail system

...is there anything worthwhile as far as singletrack?

I'm no expert as I have only been once...last Saturday. If I lived right there I would ride it a bit I'm sure. And it's on TrailForks, but TF certainly doesn't show all the single-track. There is probably 3-6 miles (maybe more/less?) of loamy, twisty and low-tech rocky single-track, mixed with 6 or so miles of  gravel paths. The single-track is fun enough, and reminiscent of some of the flat and under-ridden SATN trails. But it is flat and probably not worth going out of your way to ride. It is also hard to combine this with Suburban Ninja because E Whitestone is a nightmare for bikes. Although E Whitestone does have quite a few huge and fun concrete drainage ditches that can get you away from the road in spots. 

Pretty soon I'm planning to do WilCo again as part of a much bigger ride combining it with Brushy, Behrens and Xtal falls. And it seems Peddlers has the same idea for another Nutcracker next month. But those types of rides will be the only reason I'll get over there.

From The Peddler/Red Horn there are a couple options for getting to Wilco.

1) cross 1431 at the light and roadie up to CR 179/Journey Pkwy then east to 174/Sam Bass and South to Wilco.

2) Ride the 1431 south side easement up near the fence to 174/Sam Bass. It's grass but easily doable  Then cross at light of through the storm drainage under 1431.  Side walks north to Wilco.

Either option works fine.
