    There is some flowy stuff, some technical stuff, some long grinds, some sweet DH runs, some freeride stuff, some fire roads, some secret trails, etc...

    when do you want to ride? I live by Gretna and ride regularly, I would be willing to show you around sometime. I try to avoid Governor Dick during peak times on weekends so as to avoid running into hiking families.

    Like Lititz dude said, Swatara is the place for flowy stuff. It's all singletrack, no rocks and non technical. There is only about 6 miles of trail there so far, but it's definatly fun.

    Would any of you be able to post directions? I live in Hummelstown and would like to give this trail a ride sometime.

    I agree Swatara is SWEET!

    Hop on 322 East for about 20??? miles. You will pass behind Annville and Lebanon. Then you are looking for the Mt. Gretna exit off of 322. Take that exit and you will come to a stop sign. Make a left and follow that road for maybe 2?? miles. In the middle of town you want to look for Pinch Road. Make a left and go up the hill. At the top of the hill you will see parking on your left. Park there and follow one of the many trails.
