good trails, logs, jumps, fun! from personal experience, if you see something blocking the trail either move it or put something accross the trail to warn other riders. i went flying over a downed tree after landing a jump at mach speed yesterday, it could have been avoided if the first person to ride it (I SAW SKID MARKS) would have put some logs accross the f*&King jump. i ain't bitchin but these trails are great and i have seen lots of people enjoying them, lets work together and try and keep each other from flying off of our bikes unnecessarily. wow i never intended to drop philosophy. max check the web link for french creek

Summary:
Not recommended. This place seems to be used for environmental conservation programs. I've seen classes held in the wooded area. All the big log piles have been broken up, and everything I've personally build back up was broken down the next week. It's not worth riding here. Look elsewhere.

Summary:
The Enchanted Forest huh? Being that I ride this trail twice/three times weekly, I would be surprised if I missed that one. This is a great place to ride for an hour or two. The log jumps and piles are great for learning the proper way to clean these type of obstacles. They are, however, fragile so maintainence is appreciated. Also, these logs have the tendancy to bend your third chainring with ease if not approached with speed and tact. As the summer progresses, some of the drop offs and roots get washed out and more difficult. I love this small gem hidden in West Chester.

Recommended Route:
From the access road bridge, take you second right and climb to the top, over a log, across the road, and straight across to the trail on the other side of the road. Follow that trail all the way down staying left until you come to the road where you started and repeat 3-5 times for a warm up. Head up the road all the way until it vears to the right and turns to gravel. Follow that road until you see a right that is marked about 15 feet in with a baby log drop. Follow this to the left over some logs and straight until a almost 180 degree left "emerges", take it. Go all the way on this trail for some challenging ups, downs, skinnys, rocks and one log that f's my bike up everytime.

Summary:
This place has potential. Its OK. I like the log piles, and even those stairs (out in the middle of the woods?) Crossing over the same trail again and again gets annoying, but if some locals put more work into this place, like making a really technical, definitive line starting at the way top and ending at the way bottom (think Canada and those freeride trails in B.C. riding over fallen trees, then over rocks and making obstacles) then this place would kicketh-asseth.

Recommended Route:
same as everyone

Summary:
Good mix of trails with log jumps and rocks. The only bad part about it is it is a small area. You have to do a bunch of loops to get a good workout.
If you enter from the paved path going up hill, find the trail on the right side that runs parrell with the paved path. Head down there and you will find some big log jumps (4 in a row) that are great. The last one is about four feet high (They all have smaller logs stacked in front and back so you can ride up)
This is a good place to learn for beginners or advanced riders who live near by and are looking for a quick ride. It is also difficult to get lost since it is small.

Recommended Route:
Park at the South side of WCU stadium.

Marsh Creek, French Creek

Summary:
Found a new technical section today. As you cross the bridge after the big hill by the tennis/baseball fields, the mai trail goes to the right, bu if you go straight there is a new tight single track trail with some very technical logs. You will come to a sharp turn, look up the hill and you will see some small logs piled up that lead onto a fallen tree that you can ride across!!! It is 20 or 25 feet. Then there is a nice STEEP ceak cross.
There are some nice trails on the other side of the paved road that runs through the middle. There are some really good logs, nicely maintained, some roacky sections, good decents, and uphills. Good for a afternoon ride. Not for a weekend trip. There are some good areas for new riders, but can also please the better riders.

Recommended Route:
turn left at the tenis courts. Park there. Ride down th nice flowwing hill to the bridge. Trails start there.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bonner Park
