Summary:
This trail is just a neat little trail. I would not consider this a ride in itself but if you know the area it is considered a conector trail.

Recommended Route:
Start at middle run cut through white clay to creek road ride a little road and pick up this trail around 273 and follow it to lold chesnut hill rd and cross the road and link up iron hill

Summary:
Almost like trials riding in the early stages.

Recommended Route:
Here are some good directions for a ride to Iron Hill.
Follow Elton Road out of Newark until the housees on the left hand side end (just past casho mill road). Dip into the trail under the bridge that Elkto Road takes over a small stream. Follow you nose past the chrystler plant and upon exiting the park onto chestnut hill road, cut through the apartment complexes parking lot and you're at the base of iron hill. Come to think of it, the parking area is off chestnut hill road (but i like riding to my rides).

Summary:
Skill level : extreme?!!!????
you gotta be smokin' crack! This is a tiny little connector trail, great for beginners, with a lot of fun little twisty trails, but it is short, and mostly flat! Got a couple of creek crossings, and some rooty sections. That's about it.
I have pleasant memories of the place though, it was the second trail I rode on my first ever mountain bike ride. You can go there over some road from Iron Hill.

Recommended Route:
from the trailhead

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Iron Hill. Nice casual ride with some fun stuff thrown in.
