Trail Description
About this trail
The park is riddled with roch gardens and large obstacles. most are rideable by fairly novice riders, but there are also some pretty gnarly stuff to ride. from the first right parking lot, a good route is trail 7 to the end of the fittness trail, pass the south lookout platform and into the back parking lot. from there go up the walking trail (trail 1) and go straight until you get to trail 2 and go right. from there ride till you pass the north lookout and the beggining of the new trail 4 is there( 4 is technical in some parts, but really fun) then at the bottom of 4 hop on trail 5 and either get off the connecter or go around the 3/4 mile loop or so back to the parking lot. this is my favorite loop. there are plenty of ways to get around the park, if you take the back trails (8 and 9 most notably) get ready to climb excessively are hike-a-bike; it can get pretty intense back there.

Review: Not very beginner friendly. I have been there twice with my 10 year old and he loves trail 8 and 4. Still more to explore.

Review: This isnt beginner friendly what so ever. Trails arent clearly marked(no color coding.) Lots of downhill loose rocks. Otherwise if you are comfortable and experienced this is worth it.

Review: These are my home trails and they are great. Lots of rocks! lots of different trails to ride on and lots of loop options. Also since it is a ridge and the parking lots are at the top you never ride to far from the parking lots. Trails are diverse enough that everyone can enjoy them. There are definitely trails that new riders should stay off of.

Review: very cool trail with STEEP hills and many challenging turns and rocks. Trails are very slipppery and almost dangerous when snow is on the ground. Scenic View near the parking lot.

Review: Once you get past of why it got it's name. The park is just non stop fun. The Gut is the coolest. Lot of technical ride the broken chair is really fun with banked switch backs drop offs. I read the review from the Chain breakers his route is awsesome. I have been only riding for 10 mos, You really appreciate a full suspension bike at this park.

Review: Fun trail. Mostly single and double track. Flows really nice and fast. Rocky in places but all very rideable. There are some fun boulders you can ride on if you want to get creative. You can end up in some neighborhoods at the bottoms of a couple of the hills. Worth riding it if you are near by.

Review: I ride at this park almost daily. I have a 5, 6.4, and 7.5 mile loops built that are challenging and fun. If you start at the first parking lot on the left you can hit the trail 5 loops. These are a great warm up trail and has some fun turns and small downhills. If you jump off onto trail 6 "the gut" it will take you down to the bottom of the park. The hill climb out will be a little technical and challenging. Trail 7 is much the same way just off the other side of the ridge. I normally do trail 7, trail 3, trail 1, trail 8, trail 2, trail 4. Trail 4 is a fun downhill with technical rock sections, burms, and a nice climb out after crossing a creek. Trail 2 is also a great trail if you ride it backwards and add trail 9 to it. The Park is well maintained and trail widths vary. They have a trail map available and it is pretty close even though there are some undocumented trails that need added. I am part of a group that rides this trail most Saturday mornings called Chainbreakers. Look us up on Facebook and see the next time we ride and join us. We will show you the trails.

Review: This place is the bomb. Trail 4 is extremely fun. If you're looking to get the uphill workout trail 9 will destroy your legs if you don't walk.

Review: One of my favorite places to ride. It is rocky but you can ride it if you have the skills :) Alot of new single track trails have been added along with berms for some of the downhills! If it has rained recently call York county parks to be sure the trails are open 717-840-7440.

Review: just rode here for my first PA MTB ride. Im from southwest MI. this was intense. long DH then a big uphill... compared to what Im used to. very rocky. but seems like it a great place to ride if you can pump it back up the hills. fun drops and log crossings. Great MTB experience
