    12/22/19- all E trails closed due to logging. This review is based on riding E1 (got on it accidentally the wrong way and ended up on Reservoir Rd), W3, W2, and W1. Nice little trail system that makes the most out of the topography of a limited area. The Ws are marked black but aren't black in skill level. A few areas of some 6 inch rocks on ups or downs, some rollers here and there, and near where W3 and W4 start is a chute with a step up jump and some other small jumps around. I'd consider what I rode more blue in skill level. In terms of fitness, they might be more black- typical east coast ups and downs and some of the ups can be steep, albeit short. The trails are directional and marked start and end. A short travel 29er or even a hardtail would be great here, definitely don't need lots of travel. Wouldn't make special trip here but they are nice local trails and a nice option when visiting Hershey Park- they're a five minute drive or 10 minute bike ride from Hershey lodge. Thanks to SAMBA members for making and maintaining these.

    These trails are definitely challenging. The West black trails are loaded with loose rock climbs and descents making them difficult to traverse in some spots. The Intermediate trails have less loose rock, but they also are not as well marked and it looks like someone has been cutting cross-trails which makes staying on the trails difficult at times. Still a great ride with over 10 miles of loops and about 1200 ft of elevation. Good training area.

    Great trails, a little rocky and difficult to find trail exits. Wish the trails were labeled better. You will get a nice cardio workout after this ride. Most trails are directional so read the sign and good luck finding your way out.

    not the greatest for keeping a good direction on the trails.. some of the lines seem to blend together or you may have a tough time figuring out which way to go..

    rocky and seems like they could have been shortened and made into less trails to make them bigger.. I would say if you are in the area give them a try but if you have other options go with them.

    This trail system is tough having many, many short, rocky climbs and switchbacks interspersed with fast descents. All of the trails share these characteristics with the west black trails having moments of downhill flow. There's 1400' of elevation to be gained in 10 miles. This system is great for training or for a workout. These trails are certainly not for beginners as the green trails are very limited and are also both hilly and rocky.
