    nice bicycle tree, looks like you were there just when they were blooming.

    they are almost as rare as a money tree.

    He can be more specific, but the trails are in the Red Rock area.
    Very nice stuff and in incredible shape this year.

    no...not red rock.
    that's the stuff i put in above my house. the first two shots are from 5th avenue. which is at the very end of sgl 57 in lovelton. the trail then drops into the north branch of the mehoopany via a 4 mile single track downhill along parts of red brook and stoney brook which is where you see frank riding. you can connect that to the single track that we rode a few weeks ago at red rock. we were about 4 miles away as the crow flies. i haven't gotten that far yet. a healthy but not as fun alternative would be to take henry lot up the north side of bartlet mountain. Or take the existing red green trail

    the next picture is also from lovelton at a place called the stadium rocks overlooking all the beaver dams. there is probably 3 miles of riding over stuff like that, with the possibility of another 20 miles if i wanted to add it. those flat rocks are all over the place up there.
    i'm not going to waste time giving directions. the trails are so remote and deep in the woods that you'd never find them. furthermore, its such a rural area, that i'm really the only guy who rides there which means there is no buffed in trail. its more like riding in the woods then on trails. if you're interested drop me a pm and i'd be happy to give you a tour. its probably a 3 hour ride 90% singletrack and i can guarantee big smiles. might want to wait until fall though, the rattlesnakes donít like to share the trails.

    Plains Bike
    Kevin...hey, it's Kevin over at Plains Bike. Sounds like a nice set of trails up there, but if that is state game lands, I woudn't want to be there in the fall! Definitly the snakes will be gone, but bullets hurt more!!
