If you live close by to Haverford Reserve, this would be a cool spot to have in your back yard. It's not worth making a destination out of it.
We went to explore today and here's what we thought: when you look at the trail map the small scale of the park is not apparent. You dash down Meadow Trail and within seconds are passing other trails and suddenly we realized- wow, this place is small. Meadow took us over to a trail not on the map that dropped down a nice, short and decently steep connector to a bridge and to Veterans trail. From this trail we were heading towards 476 and within a few hundred yards and up a little pitch were standing beside it.
This where the good trails begin: we rolled down under 476 to Backwoods trail that is a single track with some roots and a nice steeper drop in with a ramped log over. This loop is interrupted by fallen branches about half-way through which you can scramble over. A fun little extension is Grace Trail but it has some mud holes that will def suck your wheel in if it's rained recently. We rode back woods clockwise and it has some good little climbs and descents with some almost flowy single track. In my opinion- this is the best trail in the park, but it's just shy of a mile.
We headed out of that area and after about 50min total of exploring the trails and park decided to call it.
I gave this a 3 out of 5 because you wouldn't go here over Wiss or Valley Forge. I like the trails in Chesterbook better and Betzwood has a better flow and more variety in a similar 50 min out and back loop there.Thank |
Where's the best place to park/are the MTB trails accessible from the community park?Thank |
Better than I thought. Easy to find the trail head, more technical stuff than I thought. Just stick to the trails labeled as"dirt" on the map and you will have a pretty good rideThank |
A good place to practice and build skill. A few steep climbs and descents. A log over and a few small bridges. It was kinda tough on my small travel 26er hardtail but plenty fun on my medium travel 29er! Check it out if you are in the area.Thank |
