Mountain Biking Jordan Creek Parkway

***   Add a review
#95 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania
#3,337 in the world

On any given day this park can be very busy with Baseball , Tennis , Frisbee Golf
and Biking. On Wednesdays there are local bike shop group rides. The trails are
used for hiking and trail running and several trails will cross or follow the Frisbee
Golf fairways. There is one main jeep trail from the trail head and all trails lead
back to it. You shouldn't get lost. There are 2 climbs and one is long and
relatively steep the other is more technical. There are several smaller climbs.
The trails are used hard and most are crossed with roots and pocked with rocks.
Average speed is about 6 mph. The entire system leans more to the technical
side of MTBing but remains easy. Many log crossings , a few switchbacks , a few
fast areas. Over all , a great place to get started or learn. Watch out for hikers
and their dogs. Give the frisbee golfers some courtesy and please take out
everything you bring in.

From route 22 in allentown take the 15th street exit. If you are heading WEST
on 22 you will make a right onto 15th street. If you are heading EAST on 22
you will make a left onto 15th street. This is actually Mauch Chunk Rd and you
will pass ROTHROCK auto dealer on your right. Follow to a stop sign and make a
right turn. Follow for about 1/2 mile until you come to a Stop Light. This area
can become very congested during rush hour. At the first light make a right
onto Scherersville Rd. and follow through until you pass the tennis courts. The
parking area and Trail Head is on the left just after the tennis courts.

    We are beginners but my 10 and 11 year old girls love it here. They love the creek, the variety of trails, the fun obstacles of varying difficulty throughout even the more intermediate trails, and that we can always find our way back to the gravel trail to quick get back to the parking lot and head home. They do find themselves walking their bikes in places but are definitely willing to do it to just keep exploring and riding. Love it here

    This is what I call my home court. Love it everytime...you can make it hard and quick or relax, explore and still get a spin in. Alot of single track w/ some rock and logovers. Night rides are very fun also.
    Wear a helmet.
    Ride on...

    Kind of a mixed bag out here. Lots of well worn path with good flow and minimal technical features. The bulk of the easier stuff either criss-crosses the frisbee golf course or directly follows it. The bad part is that there is no signage whatsoever, the trails wind all over each other and some areas are little more than deer path and washout. The good part about that is that you get to kind of feel "lost in the woods" while never being too far from a paved road. Good trail for most bikers with good flow. Could really benefit from some signage and some trail clearing in the back parts.

    Wow, there's a tun of trail out there. It's thoroughly braided up. Many areas have several trail options, each more Gnarly then the last. There're some really fun rocky, steep, rooty, cool trails. Also a good bit of nice smooth trail, and one or two Lung busting climbs. I parked at ball field of Mauch just north of the river and went in there. There's even more trail then I was able to map so go explore. Most approachable part is sort of the center network, But you do have to get up there, and from ether end its a big steep deal. Going clockwise is a grassy hill up the power line cut. CCW trail switches back from the pavement, and it's steep, rooty and rocky. Easy to get turned around but you will find your way out.

    Don't waste your time at this spot. The coordinates the app provides are wrong. When I finally found the place I was disappointed I

    Not a bad area to ride. Nice views. Not too technical but some areas require some skill. Fun ride if u just want to get out for a quick, scenic, somewhat technical blast.
