Mountain Biking Core Creek Park

****   Add a review
#36 of 297 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#1,498 in the world

This is mostly a beginner trail but does have a lot of log piles and a series of 6 ramps on a downhill at the far edge of the park. Every stunt has an avoidance path for those less daring. Couple little creek crossings. Lots of interwinding trails so you can ride here for a good long time. It is very rooty. Generally a fun, medium intensity ride.

Getting there
Easiet way to get to this trail is off of Woodbourne road across from Maple Point Middle School. Enter Core Creek park and follow the orad all the way to the last field. The trail head is there, you will see a small hill entrance. When you get in the right side is the easier ride and the left more technical.

    Other reviews describe the trail pretty accurately. Great for beginner/intermediate riders, a few bridges and log piles, a handful of jumps and burms. As of today, the higher ground stuff was cleaner, trails down by the lake are both somewhat washed out and overgrown. You'll see hikers and dog walkers, but most are pretty good at sharing the trail. For a local trail system that's always available it's an awesome asset. Don't go looking for a super technical ride, and you won't be let down. I usually start at the trailhead at the furthest back parking lot, but the trailhead on the topo map is in much better condition- I'd recommend starting there.

    A very easy, simple system of trails. I encountered a few berms, little creek crossings, and BEWARE THE HUGE LOG PILE! I made the mistake of riding over it, and was treated with a hive of angry wasps. Stung 4 times, I biked out of there faster than I ever have,

    Fast, fun and a Lil flow. Lots of roots in sections. Mostly flat. Great place to bring kids or newbies. Nice work on all the bridges.

    Finding the entrance may be a bit tricky if you haven't been here before, but once you start riding, the trail has many different sections to explore. Overall grade is small, but there are steep punchy sections scattered throughout the forest. Overall a great place to ride and practice some easier obstacles.

    Fun local accessible trail. Can string together and reverse loops to get 10 miles. It's not some epic killer ride but it's always open and ready for beginner and intermediate riders. The trail is used for walkers and dogs but in my book dogs rule and everyone is nice to me as a rider. I have met many dog walkers there and a few always recognize me and say hello and chat. My wife is new to MTB and this is a great spot to learn her new bike and get confidence. I ride here a lot all winter and am thankfull it is here

    nice ride, intermediate single track. Lots of traffic when i was there with hikers and dog walkers..be alert.
    also, do your homework prior to going here, trail was a little difficult to find in a huge park

    Great track for beginners to intermediate. Lots of logs to get over and other obstacles so it's a good place to practice. Not sure why but all the jumps got smashed recently so don't expect them to be there if you are returning back from a winter's break. There aren't too many hills to worry about and the only longer hills are a very gradual assent. Also, only steep hills are very short so this is a good place for beginners to work on obstacle skills. Also a bit of roots in some areas but nothing a hardtail can't conquer. If you live near by, definitely check it out! Follow the maps people have put on here. My rule is follow the trail and stay right at forks (unless it leads you to an open field).

    Great trail for intermediate riders looking for a ride of any length, and wonderful trail for beginners. The low elevation profile with tight turns and mild hills provide great experience for those just starting out. The toughest obstacle are the numerous log overs, with the bigger ones have go-arounds. There's multiple loops that can be strung together in almost any formation for a custom ride determined on trail length, fitness, and technical ability. The park is situated at the corner of some roads, so bailing mid-ride is doable if necessary.

    Good set of small trails. Perfect if you just want to get out for an hour or two, and hit up a couple of solid wood obstacles. Great for some semi advanced hardtail riders, and above. Recommended to everyone on single tracks

    Trails are a nice challenge for a beginner and a nice quick ride for locals. It is a series of connected loops with plenty of obstacles and short steep climbs. You can easily get a 10 mile ride in at this park.

    Rode parts of the trail this morning and tried to clean up some spots on the trail. The park maintenance crew man comes out and stopped us, which is fine but informed my buddy and I that they will be removing any obstacles in the jump line area, and flatting all jumps/ drops from the trail. It's a shame b/c this is a fun trail and taking those elements out of it will really bring this trail down a notch.

    Awesome trail!...one of my main go to trails!. Has some great up and down singletrack with lots of log roll overs, dirt jumps, and bridges. There are lots of trails intertwining each on both sides of the main road. Has so nices views on the lake side. If your in the area definitely recommend stopping by and hit the trail you won't be disappointed.

    Fun Spot with a good amount of obstacles to navigate. There are also a few bridges to cross which add to the variety.

    Core Creek has two main areas; a 6 mile loop that can be started from the bottom of the Duchess lane parking, and a 2 mile loop with some hills located across Park rd from Duchess lane. Here is a Google map of the Major trail areas.

    Core Creek is one of my go-to trails. It is close to home. It is easy to navigate. There are some challenging parts but even beginners can have fun here. I rated it as More difficult because there are several bridges and taller logs.
