Summary:
This trail is a basic get out and spin through the high gears on the rail trail segments. There is some stuff of to the side that is actually a bit rougher but not very long. Go if you live close or just wanna try something different. Just dont expect anything too difficult or fancy.

Summary:
This is a real review. Something you can read and get something out of. Great cardio, no boulder fields, some roots some rocks, some rail-trail. Peaceful valley, scenic.

Recommended Route:
Entrance for Patriot's Path on Dover-Chester rd. near Park Ave. in Randolph. Thru the pines, down the mountain single track (crosses under power line). Left on rail-tail. Left at the pipeline climb, right at 1st right and zip back down to rail trail. Go down a ways and left into woods single track uphill, cross some streams, continue up to four way intersection, left up to the power lines, right at power lines up hill some more. Right at the orchard, go 50 feet or so and right into woods downhill single track. Back to four way intersection, go left down hill toward Bethlehem Hermitage and right at tree marked w/ ribbon. Thru ferns back to rail-trail make to the end, right at Pleasant Hill rd. to the bridge in middle of valley, take in the views. Return is back track but can skip the orchard sub-loop at intersection. Back track up & down pipeline cutoff. Go for awhile and make right off rail on trail that goes to power line tower. Left onto power line two-track to a climb. Get to the point where Patriots path crosses the power lines, make a right uphill and back to start point.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Malhon, Allamuchy, Deer Park, Kittatinny
