Not too good from mt. bikers. Seems to apeal to the bmx bikers, with several jumps assembled together. There are several dead ends on the trail, which lead to frustration and a nice thrashing on your legs thanks to overgrown thorn bushes.

Summary:
Not a place for mountain bikes. At least, not if you more than a 2 minute ride.
Place was a pretty sick bmx spot in its heyday in the early 90's. I rode there almost every day for several summers. One day with Dave Clymer, Chris Moeller and the Foster brothers. There's some footage of Brian Foster at drexelbrook in a schwinn video from around 93... can't remember what its called though.

Summary:
Not bad since it is 5 minustes from my house. It is short though, but I can take my kids since it so close. The rocks and roots can be technical and fun.

Recommended Route:
Pick up trail at Indian Rock Park.

Summary:
mostly wide hardpack dirt. used to be lots jumps and bowls in the center section, but only a couple remain. short, better for bmx than mountain bike. beware of fisherman in spring.

Recommended Route:
springfield swim. back of the parking lot. go under bridge and your on the trail.

Summary:
i have not gone to this trail in a long time like 2 years (college) but when i used to go this is the way i liked to go it's not the best for mtb but for bmx when i used to ride bmx i loved it then again the jumps where big real big and i know that if someone does not keep building them up then there going to be real small but if it's still like what it used to be like have fun and if you have the balls try the SKI JUMP if it's still there

Recommended Route:
if you looking to ride a trail go in back of drexeline shoping center and find the railroad go over the bridge find a little trail on the right follow that main trail and that will bring you right in to where the jumps are and going this way you keep you feet dry like it matters i have not gone to this trail in a long time like 2 years (college) but when i used to go this is the way i liked to go

Other recommended trails in the same area:
not many near here because we are right next to philly

Summary:
if you like to jump mtn bikes this is tha place to go, right now there are 2 little tables which make a weak ass rhythem section and one big table that needs to be built up, and i will be the one to do it, i used to bmx here but all those jumps are overgrown and theres a couple little tables, and one big trick table, they will be getting bigger so get down there while you still can right now i give it 3 stars cause its weak but soon enough it will get atleast 5

Recommended Route:
over the train tracks at the shopping center, cross the bridge and about 3/4 of a mile back are the jumps, its best to go this way cause security never sees you,

Other recommended trails in the same area:
don guanella, sick drop offs in the pits
