Gravel and dirt forest road that runs along the Roaring Creek reservoir and watershed. I great ride for beginners. Mile markers are posted for the 8 miles out and 8 miles back. Tables and porta-johns are spaced out over the whole ride. Plenty of places to stop if you wish and enjoy the views of the reservoir. You can fish to, catch and release. There are a few areas that are not open to the public so stay alert to those if you try to head off the main trail.
You can go hammer out a nice 16 mile ride or take your time thru the woods and try to see the wildlife. Last time I was out I saw deer, turkeys, woodpeckers and an oriole.

Review: Nice nice ride; however, I wish the trail was about three or four time longer. I would recommend bringing a lunch since you're not going to get a better backdrop for a picnic.

Review: Wonderfull trail! took my 28 month old with me rode 6 miles down and back. First three miles are much wooded with potentiel to see deer. at mile 4 you see a small dam with waterfall and small pond. At mile 5 after you pass the old stone house and barns you come to the big lake. definately worth the extra couple miles. there are many picknic areas along the way so make sure you bring a meal with you :) the path is well maintained and no traffic at all private road.

Review: Great place to go with family. I took my 5.5 yr old there and he had a great time with the rolling hills and wide main path (with a little 'boost' from me now and then). There are challenging offshoots of singletrack that I didn't spend much time on this trip, but looked like there would be plenty to keep everyone entertained.

Review: The main trail here is very easy, however there are an almost endless amount of side trails throughout the area. Some may not be very evident and many are not "open to the public" but there is some pretty rad stuff up there.

Similar Trail: Geisinger Trails in Danville, PA are somewhat similar and pretty close.
