Summary:
Did these trails today....they are marked with animals....we got lost a couple times. I wish the trails were marked a little better. If you go a few times though I guess you will know where you are at. The snake trail was very rocky...hard to ride. The bear train was great. Alot of climbing at the beginning but once you reach the top it has some flat parts...great trail. Since the leaves are falling off the trails were covered with them which madereally it kind to of slippery ride...its a great work out along with some great views!!!

Recommended Route:
Bear trail...go up to dirt road and trail starts off to right...

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
Very well marked trails with a variety of terrain, excellent aerobic workout, the single track is the best maintained trail system I have ridden on in Pa. would highly reccomend this trail system. It would be easy to spend 2-3 hours riding on different trails. this is the best option for mountain biking in central PA

Recommended Route:
the Bear is the best

Other recommended trails in the same area:
RB Winter system.

Summary:
You're either going up a hill or a down a hill. The climbs are long and some are rocky. I raced here for the first time (and the first time I'd ridden it) in April. I thought the trails flowed very well. The downhills were fun. There are lots of sections that take up you along switchbacks, so you're going downhill for a long time! There are some loose rocky sections, so watch out. I got the impression the place was pretty large. The Sport loop of Tour de Tykes was awesome! I heard the Expert/Elite loop took them up a hill that was so long, steep, and rocky that only a couple people could actually ride the whole thing.

Summary:
This trail system is very well kept. You need to becareful if your a rider that rides there often as after the tour de tykes the trail seems to get shifted around a little bit. As everyone else stated your either riding up a hill or down. There are no real man made obsticales other then a few log piles here and there. There's everything from sone nice fast downhills with a few small jumps to long winding XC trails. Great place for an all mountain rider.

Recommended Route:
If your more of a XC rider when you get to the top of the jeep rode make a right. If your more into all mountain and down hill when you get to the top make a left and go up the other hill til you get to either "copperhead" or ride all the way out to the power lines go down the shale road to the first steep decent at the electric pole and go down the "jump trail" there are plenty of fun routes all over that mountain.

Summary:
Just as already mentioned, you will either be sweating up a long hill, or holding on the brakes going downhill. Other than a few places, I thought the trails were pretty well marked. To me the trails were very bumpy, which is fun on the descent, but it makes them hard to climb up. Your heart will definately be throbbing by the peaks. There were no jumps, dropoffs etc that I could find, if you are looking for that sort of thing. the trails are fairly well kept and not too overgrown. The nice thing about all of the hills is that I doubt that the trail ever gets too muddy (with the exeption of the creek crossings). Overall, it was worth the 20-30 minutes that it took me to get there. I will probably go back a few times this summer. I think the downhill portions will be a lot more fun once I get to know the trails and can go a little faster.

Recommended Route:
I tried to stay on the blue trail most of the time. Next time I will go on the yellow trail first to see what that is like.
