    Looking for a fun full-day loop in Eastern PA

    I live right next to Marsh Creek State Park and ride up there all the time.. I'm looking for a destination for a day trip this weekend if the weather allows. Hopefully something within 2 hours of Chester County. Looking for an easy to navigate loop as I'll be riding alone. Variety of terrain would be nice. I wouldn't mind some scenery as well.

    What would you guys recommend?

    Rattling Creek near Lykens PA (i81 Tower City, exit West)

    Moosic Mountain / Eales Preserve (i81 north to rt 6, exit 3, south on 247)

    Or go "bold" and figure out a route in Michaux State Forest.

    You could start from Pine Grover Furnace SP, Calendonia SP, and elsewhere even as far south as Mont Alto SP ... and get really lost in the woods ... all day ... for sure.

    Rattling Creek. You'll also drive right past Swatara SP and could add an extra hour of bike time on your way home. SAMBA has good maps of both.
