Trail Description
About this trail
The park is very friendly towards mtn bikers. Park at main lot and ask where the orange diamond trail starts. The orange diamond is a loop. Look for the white diamond trails that lead off the orange diamond and bring you back. The first white diamond trail has a warning sign on it. Heed it. Great trail in a great location, wonderful views and great singletrack. Not super rocky, but almost. Excellent ride with the white diamonds.

Review: Trails were rideable. Some were not readily marked but others were. Quick ride.

Review: Great solid intermediate singletrack with rock gardens on the few miles we managed on the red main loop before turning around due to time/daylight. Rode one blue spur trail seems more advanced. Fun and challenging.

Review: Gorgeous park! Would be great place to take the family.
MTB trails are VERY rocky, (lots of "rip-rap" sized rock. had to air down tires a bit) Trails are not well marked at all. Never got lost but was misdirected numerous times. Rode for 11 miles but only did the north side of the lake, had to backtrack many times due to unmarked trails. Would like to return to ride again --- once the trails have better signage. :-)

Review: Nice trails but very easy to get lost if its your first time. Some nice fast and flowy spots but overall a lot of rocks and roots. One of the better trails in NEPA though.

Review: Orange trails are more flowy; hard to stay on in spots (turned to blue blaze here and there). The blue trails are technical with rocks, roots and some nice logs. It appears as though some new routes have recently been created as well (came upon a few intersections with 4-5 ways to go). This is an amazing 840 acre park. Bring extra food and water for the ride plus a GPS for reference. Pack a picnic lunch too for post ride relaxation!

Review: I rode this trail for the first time and had a great time. Small hills, lot's of rocks and good tight trails. I was concerned about getting lost but the loops all came back to the main trail, great ride.

Review: I hit up Merli twice this year, the first time by myself and had a blast, the second time with Kevin, and had even a better time, we rode for over 5 hours on some very technical rocky trails that tested every skill you could throw at them, the last trail we did was Porcupine Cliffs, WOW you have a rock face on your left, super technical off camber single track in front of you, and a cliff on your right, talk about a adrenaline rush! After the ride Kevin who has been riding for over 20 years was heard to say this is the most fun he has ever had on a mountain bike!

Review: I rode it a year or two ago before they added more trail. Its enjoyable and has a great scenic overlook of Carbondale. Trail is somewhat rocky and windy. Not too much variety though. One big plus is that after the ride you can fry up some burgers and swim in the lake (it's free!).

Review: This trail offers a diverse single track that is great for biking and is more interesting trail running. Up hill, mud, single track. "Wow"
