    Here I added it to the Stickty on the top of the Thread. WolfmansBrother8 Rides there alot and lives near by.

    Description: Mostly singletrack, some double and very little 4X4. Trails range from somewhat rocky to smooth and fast. Blue trail has 3-4 switchbacks. New trails being added all the time. Somewhat technical in places. Some tight, fast downhill sections. There are trail maps on most of the trails but they are out of date and show only the marked trails. These trails are home of the "Tour De Tykes" race to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. Also, remember where you are parked in relation to the hospital... the trails come out in different places but if you can see the hospital you will know where your car is.

    Length: 5 miles
    Trail Type: Singletrack
    Configuration: Network
    Average Time: 1hr 14min
    Average Speed: 7.1 mph

    Directions:
    From route 11 in Danville turn by Dunkin' Donuts. Go through next light and up towards Geisinger hospital. Stay on that road all the way around hospital. When coming back onto main road make a right. Take the next left that isnt to a parking lot. Approx. 1/5 miles to 4X4 road. You will see parking near there. Trailheads located there or further past to Yellow marked trail on right. Also, you can skip the left and go approx. 1/2 mile up main road to Red marked trail.

    As already stated, the trails in Danville are good, there are some very technical trails @ the Mainville state game lands and a little farther away in Aristes are some nice techy trails.

    For aristes, if you take 42 towards numedia and go to the two resivoirs. Once you pass the resivoirs you will climb a big hill. At the crest of a hill there will be a dirt road on your left. This is a good place to park.

    For Mainville, cross the over the river leaving Bloomsburg, make a left onto Mainville drive. Proceed all the way into mainville. After you get into Mainville pass off the old country store. Then as the road makes a sharp left look for a right hand turn across an old rickety bridge. This is Fisher run road I believe, next make a right onto Fire tower road. After about a half mile there will be a game lands parking lot on your left. Good start.

    thank you

    I appreciate all the input. I have a son going to Bloomsburg University this fall and hope to do a little riding when I go up to visit him. So I'm doing a little investigative work before the fall. Again thanks.
