    Honesdale PA Area

    I'll be visiting the Honesdale, PA area next week and was wondering if there are any trails within an hours drive or so worth checking out. I am familiar with Prompton as I rode there a couple of times when I was in the area last summer and will be sure to check it out again this year. Just wondering if there's anything else nearby worth trying. Thanks!

    Prompton is < 10 minutes away and is fantastic. Park at the boat launch and head towards the damn, or if you love to climb go the opposite.

    If you have more time Merli-Sonorski and Moosic mtn are @ 1/2 hour away too. All are top notch.

    Prompton was trashed during huge thunderstorm 2 weeks ago. It's ridable, but pretty F-ed up. The closest alternatives are Merli-Sarnoski County Park and Moosic Mountain. Both IMO are generally on par with Prompton in terms of quality and technicality.
    Both of these maps are slightly outdated, maybe someone has one that's more current.
