    Trail Maps/Description for Mt Gretna

    I'm looking to take my son to Mt Gretna and would like to know what trails to try. I've never cycled there but have done a fair amount in Brickerville and would like to find some nice "flow-ey" trails.

    Thanks

    click the SAMBA link in my sig for trail maps and info. Trail 15 seems to be the favorite, but it's more of a sport to expert level of ride, so if your sons a beginner I'd recommend staying away from that. Trails 4, 9, and 12 are good downhills, but 12 is a mud bog at the bottom due to all the recent rain. Trail 13 is the one with "flow" IMO. and the main trail 3 and 2 are is the route generally taken to the top. Not a lot of mileage there at GD (under 10), so I like starting at Cornwall and ride out and back on the rail-trial to get in a few extra miles.

    If what you really want though is "flow-ey" trials, head up to Swatara SP, that place is all about the flow

    Moonraker, how do you ride out to Gretna, via the railtrail, or Horseshoe Trail?

    I'm at a Camp Shand doing maintenance for the summer, and I'll be doing some riding in my free time.
