    Trials like Raystown but closer to Philadelphia?

    Guys, I really like the sound of Raystown with the good map, smooth trail and fun, flowy design. I have a good friend coming next weekend who use to race pro and want to show him a fun ride. Of course the Wiss is fun, but I have the time available to drive to try a new place.

    So, is there any place like Raystown but closer to Philly? A place where two first timers can go and have fun and not get lost?

    Thanks in advance.

    EJ

    whiteclay 3rded

    fairhill is also very close to there and while not quite as buff (but still way smoother than the wiss) feels a bit less man-made. i preferfairhill but not becasue i don't like whiteclay.

    both are excellent choices; it is much harder to get lost at whiteclay.

    Cool, thanks guys. I'm going to go tomorrow to scout it out.

    Any insider preferred routes or loops to hit from the map?

    Holy Crap, you guys weren't kidding. That was awesome!

    Parked in Middle Run lot and went north around Lenape to Bryan's Field to the skills course. Very fun in there. Then through the PO and then north around Lenape. It was cool how it popped in and out of the fields. Then went around Snow Geese and hit the corkscrew in the middle - that was really freakin cool. Continued around SG and crossed the stream over to Possom Hollow and around the Double Horseshoe back to the parking lot. There are lots of great climbs and descents all the way around there. And where the hell are the rocks and roots? I only saw some roots on one climb at the beginning of Lenape. Nice and smooth yet still a lot of challenging ups, downs and tight & flowy turns.

    Thanks again for the help - I think that will become my weekly sunday trip. I dig.
