Mountain Biking Iron Hill Recreation Area

****   Add a review
#6 of 22 mountain bike trails in Delaware
#2,043 in the world

Huge technical downhill sections--used to be a mining quarry during the revolutionary war. Trails themselves are technically moderate, some rocks, roots, best of all are the mutliple huge downhills (we call these the fun parks). Good place to go when everywhere else is muddy, there is excellent water runoff. I highly recommend this spot if you are looking to play around or are looking for lengthy downhills on the trails that lead to lengthy uphills (up to 1.5 mile uphills).
