Summary:
There is no tight single track off of Lookout Trail (1/2 mile south of the Cherry Ridge Road intersect with Laurel Pond Trail). DO NOT make a right at a little runoff trail at the bottom of the switchback just before the Lake Lookout shoreline.

Recommended Route:
Don! Don't spoil the best-kept secret.

I'm just kidding around, of course.

Summary:
On the southbound side, it intersects with Turkey Ridge, 500 feet west of the Gas pipeline. On the north, it intersects with the Lookout trail, just 40 feet from the lakeshore. Very tight, only one rock garden that I have to walk through as yet, although one of the guys on my team has cleared it. From Cherry Ridge, take the southbound White trail, which is 600 feet west of the intersection with Laurel Pond trail [yellow]. At the southern terminus of the White, make a left onto Lookout trail, go down a rocky hill for 450 feet, make a right just before you get to the lake. Makes a very nice alternative to using Cherry Ridge to Range Rd. when heading to the pipeline area singletrack on the southern end when coming from the Main lake area. Very tricky, but with a bit of luck, and a lot of skill, you'll clear 99% of it. Has turned into a favorite.

Recommended Route:
Check out the new trail running along the west shore of Lake Lookout.

Backside of Mt Creek into Hamburg Mtn wildlife area.

Summary:
I have been riding these trails everyday I can. I love this sport and have been geting serious about it. Waywayanda has the fews trails which make it promising. From smooth riding to parts where bracing yourself is a natural thing to do because of how tech. it can get. If new adventures you may seek come riding Waywayanda. Hope to see you there.

Recommended Route:
Everywhere that is new to you!

Summary:
So many great single track variations from the main routes. If you're out on Banker Trail, look for an offshoot that goes through a huge forest of mountain laurel that totally encloses the trail from above. The scenery is spectacular, the riding is excellent. Watch out for horses and hikers. Wawayanda can be real rocky in some spots, and some of the areas near the swamps can get real slippery. Be sure to pick up a map at the main gate to give you an idea where to start & how to stay oriented in the park.

Recommended Route:
From the beach- Go east around the lake, bear right onto Laurel Pond Trail. Follow to the intersection of Cherry Ridge Rd (fireroad), make a right. Take this to the "T" intersection, and make a left. Go up the gravel fireroad about 1/4 mile and make a left onto Turkey Ridge Trail. Bomb this bizitch straight through the pipeline and to a "Y" intersect. Make the left. Follow this up the ridge about 3/4 to 1 mile, at the top, make a "hidden" left (watch for it!) up a nice short technical climb to a granite ridge. Hammer down the single track through the mountain laurel, at the "T" make a left. Pass through the pipeline again. Stay straight on the fireroad until you meet up with Cherry Ridge Road again. Make a right. Climb 1/4 mile and make a left at the top of a hill onto the famous RED DOT TRAIL. Always bear to the right on Red Dot. At the end, make a left onto common access trail (Double Pond, maybe?) and pedal it out to the end, back at the campsites & just west of the beach.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Other trails? You don't need other trails. Hiking the Appalachain from Rickey Farm/ Heaven Hill area (Rt. 94 N) to the mountian top is fun, though.

Summary:
We rode this route today in the snow... Boy it was beautiful. Much to my surprise it wasn't really much more difficult than the normal (rocky and muddy) conditions. For those of you who don't ride in the winter, you're missing out big time!!! Just make sure you have plenty of breathable layers, warm gloves, neck warmer (or balaclava), and most of all warm shoes!!! I plan to modify my shoes by caulking around the cleats to keep the snow, wet and cold out. Also I will invest in some good GoreTex socks.
If you think Wawayanda is beautiful in the summer, check it out in the winter....it's magnificent. Happy Trails

Recommended Route:
Hoefferlin Trail to Double Pond; turn LEFT, and follow road several hundred yards. Where road turns left, take access trail on right to Bankers Trail. Bankers Trail merges into Cedar Swamp; stay left and follow up to Cherry Ridge Rd. Right on CRR and follow to Red Dot Trail. Red Dot to Double Pond. Turn right and follow (through puddle-hell) back to Hoefferlin Trail on left (or skip the madness by bearing right on Cedar Swamp Trail, and follow to Bankers Trail comes in on left (take Bankers back to road and to Hoefferlin).

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Ringwood, of course. BTW has anyone ridden Bearfort Mountain??? It looks really cool from a distance, but I'm wondering if it's rideable....If you know anything about it, pls email me. Thx
