    Trails Near Mechanicsburg???

    I am going to be in Mechanicsburg for a day in mid-December with nothing but time to kill. Are there any trail systems in the area I could check out?

    There is gobs of riding just west of Mechanicsburg in Michaux State Forest. Most of the intermediate and advanced trails are not mapped or marked. I would suggest parking at Pine Grove Furnace on Rt. 233 and exploring from there. Rt. 233 runs through the valley, and there is a ridge to the east and west. As long as you don't cross over the ridgeline the main road is always downhill.

    You could also check out Swatara State Park, too. It's about 45 minutes or a little more north on I-81. More info from these guys:
