    Raystown continues to amaze

    Squeezed in a ride while travelling for work on Wednesday and I am simply amazed at the quality of trails at Raystown!
    It was a bit windy so I was somewhat worried about getting clonked by falling deadwood but made out with no issues.
    Rode: Buck-Doe-Sleekdog-Eagle-Hydro (tree down on the right-hand trail near the lake going counterclockwise)-Osprey-Fawn-Buck.
    Love the way the system steps you back up to the top on Osprey and Fawn.
    Again, lots of un-controllable, spontaneous giggling.

    Sounds like a blast guys. I live near Reading, PA and would like to make the trip out there in the next couple weeks. How long did it take you complete those trails you listed
    and what kind of mileage are we looking at?

    I think I was at about 1 3/4 hours with stops of a couple of minutes at junctions to do map checks. Don't know what the mileage was. I think you can easily ride here for a whole weekend by mixing up routes in different directions.

    Hydro is "AWESOME", mostly clay and way less loose rocks in the turns. The "PUMP" is amazing! Hit it next time!

    riderup, me and NEPMTBA and Criffer were out there for a long ride a couple weekend ago, about 26 miles total, about 3:30 time riding IIRC.

    Temps were perfect for us though, don't know what it'll be like for you.

    Took my buddy out for his first Raystown visit on Sunday, we had blast. Eagle trail (counter-clockwise) is like singletrack nirvana.
