Mountain Biking Blue Diamond Trail

  Add a review
#185 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#9,290 in the world

I entered on the route from Appleton road, entering into a parking development. I then turned left, road down some gravel for a bit and from then on, followed the blue diamonds. It takes you really deep and a good thing about the blue diamond trail is, it doesn't close when the earth is went. Awesome hills, lots of scenary, best of all... Lots of SHADE. This is a great trail for beginners as it is the easiest one. I recommend Blue diamond route as it's the easiest. Road continually changes making good practice with variety of asphalt, gravel, dirt, and plain old root earth. Great scenery, historical buildings. You'll notice a horse stable in one part where you'll see an old house built in the 1800's. Very cool. Up ahead further, there are plenty of streams where you can stop and have a picnic, picnic benches, horse routes, covered bridges, and the fair hill stables where horses have the first yield. Overall, AWESOME trail.

    could this guy be any more specific
    the route off Appelton Rd. thats not worth a hill of beans to help me find this (what the heck is a parking development????)(i've heard of housing developments there everywhere in lebanon county Pa.) i just wish if people were going to post directions they would give enough info so others could map it online and figure out how to get there. FUBAR all the way * Review edited 4/5/2009
