Review: On it's own this trail is not much but...if you start in say Yardley PA or New Hope PA ride the canal then hit this trail it's nice. Also bonus...this connects to the Baldpate Mountain trail. Use the trail on the summer to find it as it is not well marked. There is also a fire road there on the other side....is an intermediate trail.

Review: It really is a shame. There are so many interesting elements to this park, given proper maintenance it could really be a great ride. However either I am very wrong in my belief in my map reading skills, or this trail system has fallen into misuse. after consulting the main (and as far as I can tell only) map at the entrance, I attempted to drive closer to the trail head to find parking. However due to the curious way the park is set up, I wound up going for a loop around the park and then back to the entrance. Consulting the map again I decided to ignore what it said and this eventually lead me to an area to park. After mounting up and looking for the trail head I spied a small bit of single track off to the side of the road, and decided to see where it lead. After following the single track for about fifty feet, I was dumped out onto another service road. Bummer. After searching for the trail again I started following a fire road hoping it would lead to the trail, but instead it just turned out to be a horse only trail. turning around I spotted a single track off to the side and after following it about thirty feet into the thick nettles and underbrush filling this part of the park, I cam to a single track crossroads, along with the only mtb blaze I saw it really is a shame.

Unfortunately it didn't indicate which way I was to go. The left fork lead through some pleasant trails, eventually abandoning me in the middle of a small stream. Literally, the trail just went into the stream with nothing on the other side. So I turn around and try the right fork,. No good there either, after about a quarter mile of the nicest path I saw all day, It dumped me in a grassy field with no directions to the next leg. Needless to say it was a frustrating, and itchy, day.
