Mountain Biking Pennypack

****   Add a review
#78 of 294 mountain bike trails in Pennsylvania

From Pine Rd. Parking lot trail head is pretty easy to find. Once in the trails this place is pretty confusing. There's paved paths, horse paths and single track. Some areas have tons of single track snaking throughout, some trails are loops and other trails actually go somewhere. Lots of bridges to go under or over and find another trail on the other side. I have not explored everything but it's easy to get 13-15 miles of singletrack here if you know where you're going. As for the riding... it's not challenging but it is very fun. Lots of flow trails and some tight twisty trails. The occasional log is the most challenging aspect. Not a lot of climbing either. Wissahickon is much more challenging. But this place is fun if you have a couple hours to explore.

    Decent variety of trails, obstacles, creek crossings, climbs, etc. However trails are generally not well maintained, some are overgrown, trees are often down for long periods of time, and land mines from horses are abundant.

    Been riding in Penny pack for 20 years and its a blast every time. While there is a paved trail running with the stream and a packed double wide running the length of the park, single track is what is it truly offers. tons of fun flowing beginner to advanced riding you just have to know how to get to it. Park at pine road and go down stream and explore the woods, if you ever get lost go up stream and you get home. Have fun.

    Good beginner tracks using the horse trails on the other side of the creek. Occasional hikers on the single tracks. A couple trails have trees over them that require dismount. Caution required since the trails are not upkept well. Some trails are marked no bikes, but you don't find that out until you come to main artery. Supposedly, there is a registration fee, per some of the wash out flyers posted. All in all, good if you want to have the significant other occupied running on the main paved path, while you try to hurt yourself.

    Although the trails are not technical, it is a fun place to ride. There are some climbs, log overs, and fast sections. Many trails to explore. None of the trails are marked.

    Hard to find parking but it is worth checking out if you want a quick ride through some lovely scenery.
