Summary:
Trail is nice singletrack. The grassy areas really need some work. Trail is a bit overgrown and muddy in these areas. Not very technical but it makes for some fast riding.

Summary:
If you get on the correct trails the turkey hill combimes with the rest of the park. If you hit the big hill it sure takes the wind out of you. Not to mention the downhill that's alot of fun. For an added bonus there are more trails on the dirt road at the end of the trail. There's a downhill where you could easily hit 40-50 mph, yeah no kidding.

Recommended Route:
Follow signs to rt.81 exit 199 Scott exit

Summary:
These trails are really fun. My wife is just starting out so the first climb was a little to much but the rest of the ride was really a blast. Lots of single track with a few small creek crossings. I will definetly have to come back and give this a run with some more intense riding partners.

Recommended Route:
From the park take rt 524 back towards I-81. just after you past the left to the ranger office you'll come to a bridge and a creek crossing. the trail is on the right. (check in the ranger station for a map that has complete listings.)

Summary:
This is a great trail for group, night or solo rides. The trails vary from moderate to some challenging climbs to nice single track. They are shared by equestrians so be on the lookout for our four legged freinds. This is a popular meeting place throughout the year for Mtbers due to it's central location and clean trails. Even with it's popularity it is uncommon to run into many bikers in the woods. This makes for a pleasant ride. A few years ago a deal was worked out with the ranger of the park. they didn't have the resources to properly maintain the trails, so a local cyclist organized a trail maintenance. This has been an ongoing project for the past three years and we get a good turn out from many trail users and the local boyscouts. We clear deadfall in the spring and have been rerouting to solve drainage problems. If you live in the area and use these trails please come out and help. And as always, maintenance is a work in progress. If you see a problem, please take some time and try to clear the obsruction. This park offers many miles of trails and with the surronding trails you can create a great three hour ride. There is ample parking. I recommend parking by the boat mooring area before the main entrance. There is no gate and if your ride lasts a little long you won't run the risk of being locked in the park. Hope to see you there!

Recommended Route:
Any direction taken will lead to a very nice ride. There are a number of trails that run adjacent to the park as well
