Review: Just road here today on the recommendation of my LBS. I wasn't really sure what to expect and what I got was pretty interesting. Single tracks has this as an intermediate 5 mile trail, but really it would be pretty easy to rack up double or quadruple that with all the interwoven trails. Very easy to get lost. Also, this system is more geared towards confident intermediate riders to advanced riders. Lots of rooty rocky climbs that are easy to stall out on if you don't know they are coming. The decents are equally treacherous. Plus there are a ton of man made obstacles and loose sandy patches. All in all it is a great place to test your skills. I got by on my 100mm hardtail but a full squish trail bike would have been ideal. I'll definitely be back.

Review: This place was a lot of fun. I have to work on my conditioning though because I started to crap out pretty early into this ride. Getting the idea of direction can be tricky. Friend and I were getting turned around often but we went in there with the mentality of "exploration" so we were not disappointed. Plenty of downhill sections with rocks. More log overs than I can count. All but one of them were manageable by me. Can't wait to go back. Just need to work on my conditioning because for all that descent there is plenty of ascending. Often times we found ourselves clearly going against the flow of the trail just by the way the obstacles were laid out so I'm sure that had something to do with the tough ascents plus I haven't ridden in months which didn't help.

Review: This trail has enough for every level, it has winding trails great down hills, lots of obstacles, a switch back that will kill ya! Nice board walks, gravel, sand, mud, rocky areas.

Review: Perfect for advanced to expert riders, tough obsticles, steep and narrow downhills, some fun boardwalk sections. Stay with the highschool always being on your right, and you'll never get lost- if not... Good luck! Couldn't find the bow tie drop off people were talking about- would love to try that, and to see more wooded sections, and jumps!

Review: Nice downhill sections followed by some tough uphills. Some sections could use some grooming. A few trees blocked parts of the trail. Very easy to get turned around in the switch backs but overall had a fun time.

Review: I found this trail tougher than I expected. There are steep sections with a crapload of rocks. I think it would really hurt to fall. Scenery was nice including a river and woods.

Review: Neshaminy is definitely a good place to test skills. The Trails are 2-3ft wide in most places. There are some very rocky and rooty parts. A few man-made obstacles. There are lots of different ways to go and it is easy to get turned around. The downhills make the climbing worth it, but you can also stay up near the top and avoid the hills all together.

Review: Better known as Neshaminy. You can ride in here for hours, be prepared for some long, fast rocky desents and then long sustained climbs that will get your lungs in shape. Lots of good stunts and a bowtie drop into rocky terrain that is very technical and not for beginners.

Review: Awesome trail. Very easy to get lost, but worth it. Black diamond rating only applicable to parts of trail, this is really a something-for-everyone area. If you don't have the skills to handle a challenging part, either pick another trail (there are tons) or walk over/around the issue.
