Mountain Biking Hopewell Park

****   Add a review
#50 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#1,869 in the world

Hopewell Park Trails is a multi-use recreation area located in Danville

PA. Parking is directly across the road from Sheetz. There are 3 main

loops for this trail which was officially opened to the public on Sept 6

2014 as part of the River Towns Cycling Classic. Built by roughly 10

volunteers, these were built in less than 1 month for the Hopewell

Mountain Bike Challenge. These trails are super flowly, moderately

hilly, some downhill, banked turns, and start out on an old railroad bed.

The trails are open for day and night time riding. Please be advised

that hunting is allowed on these grounds so they are closed on Saturdays

from the last Saturday in April through the last Saturday in May and

again on Saturday's from the last Saturday in September through the

second Saturday in December.

    My go to trail system for a short ride yet challenge climbing. Also love the jump park and flow trails.

    Good trail. There is nothing really challenging about this trail other than the climbs, but it flows well enough that you can work as hard as you want. There is only one technical section with a very aggressive downhill that has a lot of scree and is partially washed out and rutted (It should probably be looked at by the maintenance crew). It is marked with caution signs and should be avoided if your not confident as there is not much room for error. The rest of the trail is very smooth and flowing, not many roots or rocks.

    It is currently marked with arrow signs from a previous race and without these, it would have been very difficult to know which direction to ride in. I would definitely recommend that the signage is improved and a direction of traffic established.

    Tried it again this weekend. Big steep up hills or downhills that are often too loose & dangerous. Good thing Geisinger Woodbine is across the street. Trees & loose unpacked turns in odd locations of trail. Not for me. I will stick to RB Winter Park, Natalie Area, Geisinger & Rattling Creek.

    ChipMarr, judging by the date of your point, I think you were partially the victim of bad timing. Trail crews just cleared the undergrowth two days ago and the trails are in great shape. The stump you spoke of - gone. But I agree the switchback at the top is Down & Dirty is sketchy

    One thing I will say is that this trail system is VERY, VERY fast, and a-typical of most trails in the area. Because of this, the trail crews should be very aware of hidden stumps and obstacles lurking in the weeds just off the trail's edge. There are some instances where during the lush periods of summer, these hidden dangers are problematic.

    All in all a great trail system, and only 1 year old. I expect it only to improve, and looking forward to phase II, which is ongoing.

    Fun fun. These trails have something for most everyone: flat wide, flat narrow, short steep, medium length steep, mud, banked turns, technical spots, small jumps, old field, hemlock/pine, upland deciduous hardwood, lower wet "riparian". You can tailor the ride for your skill level, and because of loops and connectors, you have options to challenge yourself. The trail is well maintained without much impact on the ecology. Great birding and herping too.
