Review: Was lookling for a beginner-intermediate loop trail. I guess I should have done more research/reading. The Red trail with Hemlock and Honeysuckle were flowy and entertaining. I guess it is late in the season as I didn't experience the horse dropping issue others had complained about. Good views of the water almost the whole time. Blue trail is marked as intermediate however once you go east of the Hill Road access area it became a steep rock garden that was beyond my capabilities and endurance level, especially at the end of the loop. I lived thru it, however, had I known the level of difficulty I would have ridden Hill Road to get around that stretch of trail. Not a fun way to end a pretty good day.

Review: Red trail is fast and flowly, blue trail is more technical with stream crossings and climbs, orange is the most technical but shortest with lots of rocky sections. You can make a good loop out of all 3.

Review: Dont need to come back here. I could have a more enjoyable mt biking experience riding around in my overgrown yard. Also there are actual dangerous elements of this trail that are just plain negligence on the part of whoever takes care of this mess.

Review: Green Lane is the Best trail system in the BuxMont area. There are 18 miles of trail with at least 14 of that being singletrack. Are they groomed trails? Heck no! The singletrack that parallels the red trail is mostly smooth clay with lots of roots that runs along the lake (Honeysuckel trail) and weaves into the 3 different groves of cedars on the north side of Knight rd. Definitely the best trail for beginners. The Blue trail is gnarly rocky and challenging. 90% singletrack. Then you cross over to the Orange trail. By far the shortest section but definitely the rockiest. Not for beginners that's for sure. The Green Lane Park Trail Care Crew (on facebook) has been meeting once a month to address the muddy sections and have built a few new trails through the cedars. The park management has supplied us lots of tools and our own shed, so come out and help. If you are looking for beginner trails that are overly-groomed yet still so muddy that it's closed 6 months a year go to Nockamixon. If you want some more serious riding, Green Lane is the place to be. Just be ready to bunny hop the horse crap.

Similar Trail: It's a mini Blue marsh.

Review: Overall, I give Green Lane trails a 2 out of 5 stars. The good: The park offers beautiful scenery--especially in the fall. I could see beautiful views of the water and trees almost the entire time on the trail. The trails are marked well and there are kiosk maps along the way. Parking lots are well maintained and portable bathrooms are available. Cons: If you're looking for an IMBA-grade system, this isn't it. I rode the red, blue, and green trails. These trails were designed for hikers and equestrian users. Problems I found along way included trail erosion, extremely steep and sustained climbs, and even hazardous sections (monster roots and rocks, Very deep and tall "V" shaped sections, "dirt stairs" in some sections on climbs, poorly armored fall line crossings with rocks that will stuff your handlebars into your torso if you're not careful, etc.). What's even more frustrating is that these issues could have been avoided with a better design or even some reroute projects. This park and trails have such incredible potential that it was really disappointing to see the things that could have been. The maintenance crew should have a talk with the RideNox crew. All in all.. Was it a terrible ride? No. Was I happy I checked it out? Yes. Would I make a trip again? No. Can you do it with a hardtail? Yes.

Review: great trail!, starting this trail I didn't expect alot out of it, review stating trails were not manicured or marked. turns out all false, very clear trails with plenty of map stations. as far as trail conditions, I'd say about a 1//4 of the 17 mile loop I did was double track. very fast trails if ur an experienced rider. also a good handful of technical spots. worth the trip!!

Review: This is a combination of rails to trails and awful, unmaintained single track trails. Be prepared for thorns and raspberry bushes in your face as well as horse manure on the single track trails

Review: Does anyone out there realize that many miles of single track trails have been abandoned by Green Lane park management in recent years? I would like help addressing this issue. There is no way we should be giving back to nature miles of trails we already (as county residents) bought and paid for. Contact me if you or your group would like to help.

Review: Great run that takes you along Green lane lake. Trails were marked well with paint but at times was confusing where there was a trail split. The Blue trail has a bunch of steep climbs so start of on the orange trail where it is flatter but has a few rock gardens to crawl through, then head over to blue once you are warmed up. Definitely a place to add to your wish list.

Review: Overall enjoyed the ride today but was hoping for more. When I say "more" I mean more single track mountain bike trails through the woods. We parked in the first parking lot on knights Rd when you come from rt29 and crossed the street to pick up the Red trail. As other people have said there were some spots to jump in to the woods along the red trail, but overall it seemed like mostly horseback riding trails that you can ride a mountain bike on as well. Again, nice ride but didn't like the fact that we had to keep looking for the type of tails we like to ride. Would rather have gone somewhere that is primarily designated for mountain biking.
