    Mountain Bike trails in Lancaster, PA

    I hope someone can help me out. I'm heading up to Lancaster, PA for a soccer tournament for my son and I was thinking of taking my bike. Are there any single track trails close to Lancaster that one would recommend or if there is trail info somewhere or a local bike I can talk to.

    Thanks

    Define "close to Lancaster". I live just outside Lancaster and drive 25 min (Governor Dick or Rocky Ridge), 35-40 min (Lake Redman), or 1hr (French Creek, Swatara, Rattling Creek, White Clay, Fair Hill). I think the good trails in Lancaster County Park have been closed to bikes for years, but there might still be something there to ride if you're nearby.

    Also Reading is only 35-40 min away with Blue Marsh Lake and the trails around the Pagoda.

    sammon287, I'm assuming I'll be right in Lancaster so I would say 30 min. away would be the farthest. I would like to get away but the main priority will be getting to the soccer games. I was looking to get out in the morning or afternoon between games and didn't know what was close. I'm coming up from MD so I know the location of Lake Redman . What/where is Governor Dick and Rocky Ridge.

    There is one in Lancaster 5 minutes from Downtown (with a Covered Bridge)

    also Rocky Ridge is 15 minutes away on Route 30 West:

    --and if you are the 'all mountain type'--you are 20 minutes from here in Reading Pa.
