    Pocono Pines

    I'm going to be up in Pocono Pines for a few weeks in September/October and wondered if anyone knew of any good trails in that area.

    Closest trails would be Glen Park in Stroudsburg, or Camelback in Tannersville. Many more options within 1 hr drive. What kind of riding ?

    I'm the kind of person you need to keep your eye on or I'll wander off into the woods and forget to come back...

    Not sure on the status of Camelback, but Glen Park has all types of trails for all skill levels.

    No maps that I'm aware of, but just head in on the road between ballfield and river and head uphill. Just keep your eyes open and explore.

    I don't mean to hijack the thread, but can anyone tell me more about glen park... difficulty level, man-made features, miles of trail??? I used to live like 10 minutes from there but I wasn't into mt biking back then.
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    Trails for all skill levels. Huge gaps and drops for the dh crowd, but also tons of single/double track and logging rd that can be linked for a great xc ride.

    Was Henry's Trail built by "The Henry" ? What ever happened to him anyway?

    Yes, it was built by the henry. Some of my buddies still run in to him from time to time.
