    Lebanon, PA

    Any good rides around lebanon? or between Philly and Lebanon? I will be heading out that way for work and would like to find a ride for the afternoon.

    Gretna, or Swatara are good choices.

    Yup

    Look at the map, and go in on the single red line (parking), and keep right, making it one big loop. It is fast single track designed by mt bikers, and built by them. Not much rock, but it has logs and is fast.

    Sounds like fun.. What are the other trail loops like? I've been looking on Samba but I never rode up there.

    when are you coming?
    If your coming from Philly on the turnpike, Mt. Gretna is right there off the lanc/lebanon exit. Gretna has rocks, longer climbs and dh's. It can be soft and mushy in some areas after rain. great for full suspension and all-mountain rides.

    Swatara is the northern end of lebanon co. It has virtually no rocks, but all singletrack fast flowy. no real long climbs or dh's, great for singlespeeds and hardtails.

    like the lititzdude said, check out the samba website for maps and directions.
