Glen Park

Average Rating:    (4.05 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 21

GLEN PARK OFFERS A LITTLE OF EVERYTHING BUT MOSTLY FUN HAIR RAISING DOWNHILLS, (ASK THE LOCALS, YOU CAN FIND THEM AT CYCLE BOARD, WHERE THE REALLY GNARLY WHITE KNUCKLE TRAILS ARE), SHORT BUT STEEP TECHNICAL UPHILLS AND SOME SINGLE TRACK MIXED IN.

Summary:
I was camping 20 minutes up the road from this place and decided to take an early morning ride. I have to say this place is friggin nuts!! I had a blast and I am sure that I didn't even see the half of it. It is a Downhiller's paradise with drop, jumps, gaps everywhere. It seems very well maintained and manicured. I have to say "good job" to the locals who built this place. I couldn't even tell you what trails I was on...I just pushed and played for around 3 hrs. I did grab the trails at the end of Collins Roads in Stroudsberg, PA.

Recommended Route:
All of them.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Not from around here so the closest I would recommend is Diablo Freeride Park.

Summary:
im a local and the this thing only goes to once a week. i ride these trails at least 6 days a week. yeah, there are bum camps, and if you come across one my advice is run dudes. those guys are a little scary. if you only ride there once a year or whatever, you aren't going to get the full feel for glen park. i ride there almost everyday and i'm still finding new stuff, and we are constantly changing and building new stuff. but if you want a good downhill trail, headcase is your route. it features some wicked doubles and a 15ft rock drop.

Recommended Route:
cycleboard is no longer, its now a cheerleading school, so i wouldn't go there. go up rt. 611 and turn into godfreys ridge road, look for hte sign for fox town hill. go untill the gate, walk around and good luck!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
every one. oh, don't let atvs and dirtbikes and homeless people ruin your ride. they're not really that much of a problem. if you can find it, superfly is pretty cool.

Summary:
Octually - once a year is rather general - I'm from AZ, and I come out every summer for a few weeks, and this is the primary trail I ride (within riding sistance from the in-laws' house). What it lacks in overall size/area, it clearly makes up for in variety and fun-factor! The folks at Cycle Board Sports are realyl cool. One of my first visits, I timed very well to tag along for an overview ride (I showed up right at closing, and we rode until it was too dark). This place has stuff for the most extreme (serious stuff) to the weekender-family-rides. Note: I've rated Aerobic and Technical ratings as "3"... you'll easily find everything from 1-5 (and some beyond!)

Recommended Route:
I start at the parking area, follow the old trolly bed just about as far as it goes - connects to some uphill options to the right. one fo the best loops I like takes fire road and singletrack up past a gutted washing machine - Overlooks Deleware Gap, and then it's just a fast-fast-fast run back down. A real trip is to stay up late enough to don the lights - and try to balance focusing on the trail and tripping out on the fireflies :-)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There's a State Park just up the road on the 33 (can't recall the nae) that provides some great XC riding. Within 20 minutes drive.

Summary:
This place has the potential to be a lot of fun if you can find your way around. Stopped at the local shop Cycle Board and picked up a map and asked for some tips. The map was pretty much worthless and the shop guy rode downhill so didn't know any good loops to recommend. We rode around for a while and caught some nice bits of single track but couldn't put together a good ride for lack of knowledge of the area. Some very well built stunts if you can find them (don't bother asking at the shop. They are hesitant to give out the info for fear of someone getting hurt and cauing problems. TOtally understandable). SOme nice gaps and wild downhills. Many of the downhills are getting a bit washed out though with the heavy rains this year. The trails we did find seemed to be pretty well maintained though there are some camping spots that are pretty ghetto. Broken glass and trash surround these so be careful.

Recommended Route:
Find someone who knows the trails and have them take you.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Rode jacobsburg. Pretty tame but some pretty singletrack that you can ride as fast as your legs can take you.

Summary:
yes I have seen tent city. who the hell lives there. When I saw that, I peddled as fast as possible. Kinda wierd. Glenn Park is desent. There are some daring single track areas, but not enough. There are also some desent downhills. But, every time I ride I end up by the deleware water gap. You may come across atv riders in the park. So when you hear one make sure you pull off to the side of the trail.

Recommended Route:
The trails aren't marked, you'll have to get a map or just ride around and hopefully you'll find some rewarding trails. I usually start off at the baseball field.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
I would recommend prompton state park outside of honesdale on rt. 6. It's a true mountain bike park. No atv's or fire roads. Very clean, and no tent city to worry about. Check it out on this site.
