Down, down, down...rip through the first section, watch the "gutter" on the left & trust your side knobs, second section - how good are you in mud??? & the best for last - hope you have good brakes, put your chest on the seat, see you at the bottom!!!

Summary:
I got ticketed for trespassing up there. I also will be receiving a fine for criminal mischief since my tires left marks on the ground. Give me a break! Now I have to fight this thing in a magistrates office somewhere up there.

Summary:
EXCELLENT!!! This is some amazing terrain! Rocky Technical Terrain, great views. well cut single track by a motorcyle club for its annual Enduro Race. Not for faint of heart but tons of fun.

Recommended Route:
Park along the road between the villages of Delano and Lofty right before crossing over route 81, access single track on both the left and right side of the road. Great loop on the right!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Burma Road, St Clair, The Bungalow in Tamaqua, and Rattling Creek in Lykens.

Summary:
Fun fun til her daddy takes the t-bird away....oh wait that was a beach boys song, sorry 'bout that. This is one of the most fun downhill trails I've ever ridden in my whole lifetime, which isn't that long but still.
Just be sure to hit the rock drop-off near the middle and not be a sissy pants like jason.

Recommended Route:
The one Jason gave.

This is only one small section of miles and miles of untapped single-track. Ups, downs, rocks, mud, & fun, did I say rocks?
