    Philly Area Trail that drains the best

    Since we are getting .5" of rain tonight and I am dead set on a ride tomorrow, I was wondering what trail system drains the best? Brandywine after a rain is in bad shape, Harmony Hill usually is fine, Marsh Creek... nope. Any suggestions? How does French Creek hold up?

    Considering it hasn't rained in a few weeks and it hasn't really downpoured in a while, I'd imagine most trails are fine with little puddles here and there.
    Ask me about Evansburg State Park
    Trail days. 3rd Sunday
    of the month.

    The Wiss drains really, really well.
    On MTBR, the reputation is infamous.

    You're probably already out riding, but I 2nd on the wiss.

    The northeast side of french creek dries faster than the southwest side, but I know that park is pretty particular about folks not riding when it's wet. By now you should be good most places though.

    Yeah, this wind that we've had the past two days is good for wicking away the moisture as well.

    Wiss. It's on a creekside, more or less. Run it counterclockwise.
    I moved to Pittsburgh, with plenty of great riding, but still miss those trails every once in a while.
