#75 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania

Ten miles of Single track with a good mix of Technical riding. Trail 15 is 2.5 miles of extremely rocky single track heaven. Be sure to check for maps at park office, there are some trails that are off limits to bikes.

    This place could be a 5 so easily. There is zero trail maintenance. It has potential for days. It has super tech rocky descents that will utilize every bit of an Enduro bikes susp. There are natural Boulder drops and jumps. Fun with tons of options. I did not think it was well marked as far as what trail was bike and what was not. Guy working there said it was all good since I was basically the only rider there. This place could be world class with some trail love.

    Rode the trail today and had a blast! About 30 or so miles of trails. Trails can be very fast and very rocky. Took a nasty spill on trail 15 today fractured leg. Still rode out and had fun. Check it out!

    i'm writing this review to update and correct the directions to this trail .after viewing my internet map and following the directions listed i've come to the conclusion that from Lebanon taking 241 to 322 and continue straight on South Butler Rd. towards Mt. Gretna and you will come right to 117 make a slight right and go the approx. 1/4 mile and make a left on Pinch Rd. and up the hill to the parking lot.

    I hope the Mark fellow belows stills checks this site out as i'm curious what state game lands are closed to bikers because i was under the impression from what i read in my rule books for hunting and such that unmotorized transportation as MTB are allowed. I'm curious to what info you have on this subject.* Review edited 4/5/2009
