No. of Reviews: 11

Single track with a nice steep hill to start, rocks, roots and down trees. This is an ecellent place to fine tone your technical skills and build your cardio. The trails aren't long and is more suited for a late evening ride as opposed to a weekend trip. There are more trails than you may think and if you search hard you can make a pretty good loop. Just keep your eyes open and explore your first couple of times out. You will hit a few dead end at first. The real fun is on your way out its all down hill and that wicked up hill becomes a fast slolom

Summary:
I recently moved to the collegeville area and found Evansburg Park Trails from this site. These trials have some great potential but they need some love. It looks like these trails have been abandon for a couple of years. They tried to mark the trails with a red square but there seems to be more than 1 loop and they used a red squre to mark everything which makes no sense. It is hill and there are some nice decends. Tons of log roll overs, not too rocky but a lot of roots. Sometimes the trail is confusing because the trail is overgrown or a down tree. I am going to try to fix these trails up. The local bike shops don't know who is doing if any maintance on the trails so I will try to do some myself. I never fixed up a trail but have to start somewhere. Drop me a line if you would like to check out Evansburg Park. Since the weather is nice and I am trying to get out there more. Email me at Champpron@yahoo.com

Recommended Route:
Start at the Fern road, climb the massive hill. Stay to the right trail follow the Red squares. After the large decent make a left to go up the hill, the stone wall will be on your left. At the top of the hill take the trail on the left. follow the red squares and it should loop you back to the begining

Summary:
This trail is not worth the time/drive especially if you don't live close to the area. There are some patches on the steep sections that have heavy moss on it and has a potential of causing severe slipping. You barely get to see a soul (only folks fishing along the river) hence the tracks aren't well groomed by usage The flow is extremely choppy and a nuisance in a lot of sections. If you drive another 7-8 miles, you get a much better riding experience on the River Trail in VF park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
River Trail in Valley Forge park.

Are you sure were at Evansburg??
I ride there often; there are no sections on either loop with any moss on them and the dedicated MTB trails do not border a river.
I'm pretty sure you were at the wrong place bro.

Summary:
A sweet little singletrack there. Its a pretty scenic ride through the woods and a lot of fun to conquer the trail. Depending on the season in can be quite wet and sometimes muddy in spots but thats part of the business.
Its scattered with some nice technical root sections to navigate and lots of deadwood to hop over throughout. Some log rollovers along the route and a rocky ride over some rough terrain make this trail a lot of fun.

Recommended Route:
The dedicated mountain bike trail is two loops that generally run in a figure eight. One run through the both loops and you should be fairly famaliar with the main trail.
...Heading toward the top side of the upper loop you can turn right off the main trail and head down a steep decine. Take a sharp right at the bottom (before the road) and take the trail around the creepy abandoned house. A sweet downhill will appear that continues across an abandoned road and down to Skippack creek.

Summary:
This trail is only alright. It's super short and usually in really bad shape, mostly from neglect (rotted wooden 8x2's and exposed roots from the swamping that occurs). If they converted more of the swampy areas into terrain park ladders and jumps, this place would get a better rating from me.
