Beans Bike Park

Average Rating:    (3.6 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 20

Recognizing the need to provide access to all levels and abilities, this facility offers the features that make it enjoyable for all levels. Mastering single track takes skills not normally used in everyday riding. Thats why the mountain bikers who designed Beans have constructed a gentle, obstacle free, clearly marked, wide beginner loop that leads to the technical offshoots that provide stunts, teeter-totters, and behind the seat drops that experts and novices have come to expect and enjoy. When you cant muster up the energy for the Pine-Hill climb, use the unique trail marking system to take the bypass, catch your breath, regroup and plan your attack on the next lap. Open riding is available 365 days a year, with a race series making its debut in the spring of 2001. By the way... this place has an intense, district 12, motocross course available, check out beansroadraceway.com and/or pitracer.com for more information on MX. This makes Beans Bike Park a great place for a weekend getaway of two-wheel off-roading, offering parking, bathroom facilities, P.A. system, Motocross Track and mountain bike trails. Get ready to challenge yourself; soon you will be able to bring your Motocross and Mountain bike to Beans Road for a great day of fun!

Summary:
Drove out there on a whim to check out some different local trails. Easy enough to find, talked to the owner before we rode. According to him - "the trails are marked, have fun." Neither statement is legitimate. There is no way that he has been out to check on them in...at least 5 years, judging by the growth into and over the "stunts." The actual trail is blocked by a downed tree that looks as if it has been there for years, and it is in such a location that circumnavigation is nearly impossible. This place looks like it was really something when it was originally built, and then nobody ever maintained anything. Don't waste your time, there's nothing to actually ride.

Summary:
I just came back from Beans. I recently moved to New Philly and I've been looking for some good riding in the area. This isn't what I'm looking for. Calling this place a "mtn bike park" is a little generous. There are a few stunts, but this place is really not designed for that kind of riding. I couldn't imagine someone bringing their big-hit bike and suiting up in armor to ride this place. It'd be a huge disappointment. Also, the trail is not singletrack; it's double track. Right now it is 100% covered in leaves and the roots are wet and slippery. I read somewhere that the trail was 6.5 miles long. If it was longer than 3 miles, I'd be surprised. I'll probably never go back.

Summary:
i don't know if this trail is ridable at other times during the year, but right now it isn't going to happen. just tried to ride the mountain bike course. the place looks like it hasn't been touched in a while. i made it up a big hill, wound up in a field and figured i missed my turn. so i turned around and went the way your supposed to and made it about a hundred feet before the trail became so choked with sticker bushes i gave up. unless you have a machete in your camelback i'd try somewhere else.

Summary:
If you like up hill switchbacks this is the place for you. Built on two nice size hills that will give you a workout. Its a good loop that took about an hour and a half (including replacing a tube) on the green loop. Two no-brakes downhills were pretty fast. Beans is pretty well maintained and easy to get to.. If you have a full suspension take a look at the sick trails course! I have some pics on www.geocities.com/nelsonpsu/BikeReviews.htm

Recommended Route:
the turn off of 250 is by a church and a crappy Inn. Look for the BEANS sign and continue down the road. You can't miss it.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Vultures Knob, Mohican
