    For our first time there it’s obvious there is a passion for biking in the reading area, trails are well maintained. There was a lot to take in, and many trails to choose from, we rode to Rotory park and from there made a nice loop back to some sick skinnys & techy rocks.
    A broke seat post made for a looong standing climb back to the cars, but it was worth it. 7.11miles
    Looking forward to riding it again with someone who knows the terrain. If there is ever a “work day” my friends and I would definitely be willing to drive down to help.

    Berks County Parks has mostly spur road mapping for Anitietam side,couple single of track.Mt Penn is mostly ride and explore and is intended to stay that way.there are some marked trail like the Gravity Trail and can get a map from the Conservancy and a few others but no maps that I know of.best to contact BAMBA and coordinate a ride

    It is great to see that mountain biking has become popular in Berks County. In the early 70s, my dad was one of the founders of the BCBC (Berks County Bicycle Club), when I caught the biking bug. That was so long ago, Motobecane was a very high end ride. Now-a-days I'm nearly 100% dirt, and living in Durango Colorado makes that pretty easy.
    PM me if any of you Berks folks find yourself out here, I just may be able to show you a ride or two ... but I won't be responsible for supplemental O2.

    Hey Jeter, which loop do you plan on doing? The whole thing, or just the bigger half?
