New Year's Day Riding

Should be ok.... it appears the ice has melted from the tops of the mountains. You may still encounter a small patch or two in the more shaded/protected areas, but certainly nothing that would prevent you from riding. Enjoy!

Weekend Ride - Got Ice?

The trails are icy at spots -- I'd say 50-60% covered of thick, hard-to-ride-on ice. I had plans on riding, and switched my plans to a road ride because of the icy trails. Even with the warm temps, I can't say for sure they'd melt -- it stays kinda cold in the woods. Hardy folks would enjoy it -- I saw some tread tracks, but it could be the locals who run studs. If you drive into Minnich's Hit picnic area or anywhere else IN the forest on White Oak road or Lykens road, BEWARE of thick ice on the road too. You'd be better off parking in one of the outlying parking lots (Snowmobile or East end).

Trail Update - Christmas Eve

Right now we are having icy rain, but the outlook is nicer for the weekend. Currently, the trails are ice covered -- maybe an inch or two. Please check back Friday evening for weekend riding (expected high of 51 on Saturday!) as I plan to do a trail run on Friday and will give you a first-hand assessment of trails for riding. You saw the post below on the Firecracker ride in October? That's the last I've been on the trails and would sure like to finally get out riding on Saturday. Merry Christmas!

Northeast PA Trail Building Article

Interesting article here on Trail building efforts by several groups in the White Haven area of Northeast PA. It could link many, many miles of mountain bike trails. I couldn't tell from the article how technical, but suffice it to say they probably aren't like Rock's Ridge! Its worth the read.
