Technical singletrack for intermediate riders. Can get pretty muddy, has a few rock gardens, fallen trees, and a few small steam crossings. A few good up hill climbs, can get pretty tricky.

Summary:
There has been extensive trail maintenance and work performed on these trails that will take you from 95 to Pleasantville Rd. Gunpowder State Park volunteers, bikers and GUMBO have worked diligently to make these trails enjoyable for bikers and hikers alike. They are excellent for beginners through expert riders and provide plenty of excellent sightseeing and breathtaking views. These trails were designed by riders for riders to make for fun and challenging rider with different variations available for every ride, plus a low line along the river for quick returns or for beginners who have trouble with the challenging climbs.

Summary:
Ride this when I get bored with the trails behind the rec center (up 152). Wanted to haul a hacksaw down there, but never got the chance. Maybe this summer I'll bring a chainsaw (will get my driver's license in July). Not bad riding until you splat yourself on a tree. I'm a beginner, so this might be just my horrible riding.

Recommended Route:
Same as above.

Summary:
Well I can say that this trail could be very nice if it were maintained. I'm not whining about a couple of logs either. The trail had undergrowth all over and these curious burm type things everywhere. There are a couple of nice fast parts but the y don't last too long abd since this was my first time on the trail I didn't want to kill myself. There is a bridge that has broken and fallen into the creek and you must carry the bike past that. Then the trail got really over grown where a tree had fallen and I'd seen enough. I've been spoiled by the quality of the trails at avalon, mclkeldin and susquehanna.

Recommended Route:
Who knows....just kind of meander around.
