Summary:
From the mixed reviews I heard, I decided to give this trail a shot. I should've known not to believe the whole "extreme" bit. I am very pissed off and would like to find the people who made up all that crazy stuff about this trail. I work long hours and I'm married, so I have to take advantage of finding nice places to ride, and not waste my time on stupid trails. But I rode the trail anyway and I might just use the trail for training, and leisure. I have to say I almost did ride the creek like they said, but I'm sure they just made all that up, so I did'nt try it.

Summary:
I love this site and buy and many bikes for my japines friends here in Japan. I am from nanty-Glo and have ridden the Goast town trail from the time it was built. i was planing a trip to visit my parents in oct and was going to bring my bike along and check out some of the trail in the review. My question to all out their is how can you clasify this trail as extream or even single track when it is 100% flat and over ten feet wide of packed pea gravel. Did someone make drastic changes to this trail since 1996 or is their another trail Im not awear of. I want to check out several trail in the area and dont wish to waste my time with bogas reviews. all please reply

Summary:
Ahh, good ole Ghosttown. Flat, yes , however those of you who have eyes and can use them should ride along a little slower next time. Look for quad tracks and old spurs of railbed that come onto the main trail. Avoid posted signs and you may find a nice trail into the woods. Another place is to follow the trail from where the parking lot is at Eliza Furnace to the end at its junction with 422. Continue along under the overpass beside the creek. On the other side you'll find plenty more railbed and quad trails. Good stuff, technical climbs and rolling banked turns. Miles of stuff.

Recommended Route:
Entire length is connected to Quad trails, powerlines, gaslines. ect. Good Cross country stuff.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There is an ATV club out in that area. There trails a race oriented but are ultra fun on a Mountain bike. Dry days only.
