    The state forest map in this thread is pretty good, but obviously not specific for Mt. Biking. If you cannot find anything else, try calling the state forest office during weekdays and ask them if they have any maps specific for mountain biking. In general, most of the footpath-type trails in that SF are rocky and steep.

    I don't believe Eagle's Mere Mountain Bikes has opened in the past two seasons, and before that they were a weekend-only operation. The owners used to live in the Harrisburg vicinity and go to the shop on weekends. They at one time had a 'map' of MTB trails the area, which was a USGS 7.5-minute topo map, with several trails marked up, and they made fullsize black and white copies and sold 'em for $5. Assuming they're basically outta business at that shop try calling the following and ask if they have old copies of the map from the bikestore for sale: Eagle's Mere Visitors bureau/office, Wyoming State Forest offices, and the bookstore in downtown Eagles' Mere.

    trails

    i have a map that i've held onto like gold since he closed the shop - it's well worn

    suggest going down 154 towards worlds end, go right on shanerburg (sp?) to where the horse parking is, there are trail maps of the red blaze trails there, there is some fairly nice riding in there with some side trails if the horses haven't destroyed them yet

    i'll be at worlds end starting 7/21 and biking up there all week

    here's a scan of craig old map, tried to piece it together

    the other one has the numbers on it - they are on highway reflector signs at the intersections, handy after you make a wrong turn or someone (hikers) get lost
