Summary:
The dike system is a great place to ride a bike. Paved and beautiful scenery the entire trail. ONE BIG PROBLEM I ride trails every where, and do over 1500 miles a year, but nowhere in any city are the people as un-educated about the main rule, which should be posted along the trail.-----RIDE/WALK ON THE RIGHT AND PASS ON THE LEFT.I was just up at forty fort dike on 6/21/2010 and three girls were running across the dike in a row and would not move to let my husband and I pass correctly. If I hit this girl for not moving, will I be responsible for her lack of having a brain.

Recommended Route:
Start in Hanover Township and ride the entire trail to airport. BEAUTIFUL

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Back Mountain trail.

Summary:
This is a ride the whole family can enjoy! The route is paved bike path for almost all the way to rt. 11 in Edwardsville. Plenty of spots to get off the levy and ride in the woods along the river. My children can handle all the sections of this ride. There are places to stop and get food and drink along the way. We rode out and back and then took a short road route to find the other side of the levy route that goes in the other direction. We ended up in Forty Fort just past the airstip. Once again, the whole family will enjoy, lots of great views on most of the trail. Forty Fort side.

Recommended Route:
Take the Cross Valley Expressway. Get off once you have gone over the Susquhanna. At end of exit ramp, take a left and go over the Expressway. At next stop sign take a left and then another left into the Levy parking lot. Start by riding the levy toward Kirby park.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lehigh Trail in Whitehaven, Seven Tubs, Pa Gamelands, Giants Despair, Narrow Gauge Rail trail from Mountain Top to White Haven or from Mountain Top to Giants Despair(Wilkes Barre).

Summary:
Its flat and it doesnt always smell great down there. Quads and dirt bikes often go buy and a lot of times there is drunks down there so its not the most peaceful trail. i think it needs to be cleaned up. A lot of trsh laying around and the trail is kinda thin and in mid summer your riding with wall to wall weeds on both sides of a very thin trail.

Recommended Route:
start in kingston at dike parkinglot

Summary:
This trail is great. works better if you have suspension mountain bike.

Recommended Route:
From the where the dike starts near cross valley, on the dyke to behind price chopper, cut down the dike and the trail is hidden but makes very good off roading follow the trail all the way past the train bridge and you can end up near plymouth. Very good off road

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
I have one word for this trail, flat. Don't get me wrong, It's an ok trail to hit when you can't get anywhere else, but I know of many trails within minutes of Kirby Park that have evrything; climbing, sweet descents, singletrack.The trick is, those who know about these trails keep it to themselves, but I'll tell you where to go, just email me at joe_mang@geocities.com , and maybe I can get a couple of friends and show you the best trails in the Wilkes-Barre area.
