The parking lot is big and it can be hard to find the trailhead. The trail is mainly for horses, so look for the markings with a picture of a horse.

The trail is made up of loose rocks and not vey fun for the first mile. You will cross a road and have to find the trail again (not very obvios where to go). The rest of the trail stays close to the reservoir with some nice views. The trail is not too technical most of the time, but has some treacherous parts. There are a few streams that feed into the resorvoir that have a steep downhill followed by a steep uphill that can be tough.

Cross Knights Road bridge over the reservoir and continue on the other side. Some of the trail is deep gravel for horses and sucks to ride through, but doesn't last for long. Honeysuckle trail is a very cool 1-2 mile stretch of the ride. At this point you can catch the red trail as well. Take Knight Rd to 29, make a right, make a right on Hill Rd and go a crazy steep hill to get back to the parking lot.

Summary:
I used to think Green lane sucked. Really. Then the blue trail opened up and was able to be re-connected to the red trail.Then the orange trail was found and has been improved. Green lane is an absolute gem and a hidden treasure. The blue and orange trails are everything you want in a trail. Nice climbs, nice downs, jumps, rocks, roots. Everything. Wish they were longer but you can't have everything. Oh yeah, and nice views.

Recommended Route:
Before I took my son to Salisbury for the first time, I took him on the blue and orange trail 5 times. He said it really helped him get ready for the trails in Salisbury.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lots. Salisbury, Wiss, High Rocks, Belmont, Nox. All fantastic trails. All the MTBers in the area should take time and really appreciate the great trails that you have access to. I have since moved and miss the area terribly.

Summary:
It's been a while since the last review of these trails so I thought I'd add my input.
There are now 17+ miles of rideable trails. Blue, Red, Orange, White. All are now well marked. There are several small loops off of the main loop that are easy to miss if you don't know the place. Still takes a while to dry out after a rain. I think it's one of the best trails in the area. Very underrated.
Beware the entire Orange trail is very technical and is not for beginners.

Summary:
Being from Virginia, we didn't know where to go other than what was on this summary, but the directions were right on and, yes, the trails were a little wet and muddy but there was enough dry trail to make it very fun. We rode from the Hill Road Day Use area and took the Blue Trail west. The ranger, who was very nice and helpful, explained that there was only one section of the Blue Trail closed to biking. The rocky, rooty and hilly trails were awesome and I'm looking forward to going back on my next trip to Philly...on to Wissahickon tomorrow.

Recommended Route:
Blue to red looked good but we didn't make it too far today. Be aware that the one short section of Blue closed to bikers makes it impossible to get back to the boat landing parking lot at Hill Road day use area if that is where you parked. The only way back is on the road and the ranger strongly suggested staying off the road and doing an out and back.

Summary:
I was here last week. Very muddy even 5 days after rain. I was interested in the Blue trail as the previous reviewer described. Despite being easily the best trail in the park, there are still some signs prohibiting biking. I followed up with the park ranger via email and his response is paraphrased as follows: "..that part of the blue trail is posted for no bikes... However, in the future we are planning on trying to modify the trail to allow bikes. Please keep in touch to find out when that may be. Thanks. Mark Shope, Green Lane Park Supervisor." So any locals with time to spare should make themselves known to Mr. Shope. They can open up faster if the MTB community can offer up some volunteers.

Summary:
The Blue Trail is now open! This is an awesome trail!

Park on Knights Road or at the boat launch off of Hill Road.

Plenty of technical creek crossings and challenging uphills.
