There are many seperate trails that sometimes allow the rider to form several loops but it can be hard finding a nice rout. The trails vary in skills from easy to downhill.

Summary:
I started riding here back in the mid 90's when i was going to Millersville Uni. I actually started riding just the BMX dirt jumps with the locals (Piefer bros) Some good times and big ass jumps back then. But i discoverd it to be pretty cool for mtb when i got one. Riding down the old train track along the new one(down river), youll get to the old train tunnel. If you start at the bmx jumps, get out to the tracks and cross that small track bridge, then head down the embankment towards the river, a nice single track runs upriver along the Susquehana. It goes pretty far.

Recommended Route:
I park and start at the bottom lot (on the side of the road)

Summary:
I rode this trail once while living in PA for a race. I left the race with a tree branch impailed into my leg. I ried riding down the one insane downhill and got caught up with another rider...fun. The course was crazy, having to crozz a stream that was about 5 feet deep and then get up a steep hill afterwards that just seemed to keep going...fun after being all muddy from the stream crossing. If you are in the area, drive the extra 30 minutes to Mount Gretna. It's worth it!

Summary:
Its a good trail that got me into downhill Mountain biking. Its fun and chalenging at times.

Recommended Route:
Go strait down BreezyVeiw its a cool downhill course. When you get to the bottom you can follow an old railroad bed. It takes you about a mile then you can get off and you are at the bottom of the mountain.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If your into BMX there is the bowl twards the end of the trail.

Summary:
Nice riding all around,a little bit of a trek to do all the trail and does have the danger factor involved so...I give it 5 wheels cause its near my home town and it has gotten me into the sport.

Recommended Route:
There is no real route just as long as you arent walking when you begin.Its easiest to start at the parking lot nearest to Chiquies Creek and go up 441 to the fork in the road. Then you can choose to go up the road,turn down to "Which Ways" or turn up to "Shanks Trail". Shanks Trail is nice to go down and up.Which Ways is a good trail but a little over grown during the summer.Once you have ridden those trails go up to the peak and you'll see a park sign(which does happen to not allow bikers to ride on any of the trails but we've seen park rangers doing it and they havent cared.So anyways go down the trail behind and turn at the tree for a cool single track/technical ride or go up to the highest peak for a nice view,or you can cross 441 after going over "Goats Path"(the technical trail) and ride up to the over look or over to "Death Sentence".Breazy Veiw is nice and it has i sign up at the top of the hill of 441

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Rocky Ridge,NCRT,Heritage Trail(located at the bottom of the cliff face for Chiquies).
