Summary:
Great Ride! Good for most types of riders - intermediate to advanced. Plenty of uphill/down hill. All water crossings via newly installed footbridges. All trails excellently maintained. Cross over Pleasant Hill Road for another 4-5 mile connector loop then back to Possum Hill.

Recommended Route:
Clockwise on Whiteley Farm Trail is my preference.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Judge Morris, Middle Run (all within 5 miles of each other)

Summary:
Well the trail work is done and what a difference. They took a park that only had double track gravel trail and turned it completely around. It hooks into middle run at three poins of the Lenape Trail. All of which cross Paper Mill Road. THis is a busy road some times so please be careful. Once you cross over you are rewarded with some fantastic singletrack. I prefer to do it counter clockwise and there are so great field downhills and singletrak. Then i head over and do the David English trail in a figure 8. THis gives you two great uphills and two great downhills to end on. Then back to possum hill and continue up hill now and thru more great singletrack. This is a real treat. THe singletrack is smooth and twisty. A course that you can do slow and have fun, or fast and have a challenge.
