    Good job! Trail recomendations welcomed for 11/19

    I am taking friday off to go ride somewhere. I don't know where, but I want to do something different than the usual.
    My usuals are;
    Fair Hill
    White Clay
    Gretna
    Rocky Ridge
    Camp Mack
    rarely, I will go to Blue Marsh
    Mt. Penn
    I live in Lancaster and want to ride something different. I would drive a couple of hours one way. Wissahickon comes to mind( I have been there and like it), but what else, what do you recomend? I am down for anything new. Thanks!
    Ben

    French Creek has some good stuff. Marsh creek is alright, but probably not worth the drive. The Wiss is a good bet for sure.

    If you choose the Wiss, lemme know. I'll show you what I know. I am usually there at least twice a week.

    French Creek and the Wiss are both cool, but my first choice would be Rattling Creek.

    Thanks for all of the recomendations! I am heading to Patapsco, and then into Baltimore for some urban. Friends of mine have been building some jumps and drops in Patapsco recently, gotta check them out. Sunday, I will be at white clay for a trail ride. I really need to get to Rattling Creek.

    Took the van down to MD, with a slew of bikes, had a lot fun, and rode some dh/fr, and then went to the dj's, and then into Baltimore for some urban jibbing.

    I would recommend trying swatara if you enjoy fast flowy singletrack.

    I rode there one time, it was in the summer. I found Swatara frustrating at times, there a few sight lines, it was a good thing I was there super early. Towards the end of the ride, as more people showed up, I could imagine people getting into wrecks. The place is sooo swoopy, and quick. The other thing is, it's fairly small. Remarkable the amount of trails they have in such a small foot-print. It like riding a bigger scale Crack-head Bob(fair hill). We rode CCW, and the CW, about an 1.5hrs.

    wow, great pic.

    i haven't been to Potapsco in over 10 years (I was in Texas for a while) and it seems as though things have changed. I may have to make a run down there, it looks like a tasty place.

    That's why all real bikes can go UP and DOWN, I got some really fun DH on my ride today in Mt. Top - definitely a couple really cool runs, but ya gotta pay the gravity fee.
