    Waynesboro/Franlin County trails?

    Friend of mine is moving to the area (Waynesboro) and I will be visiting now and then and I was just wondering what trails are in the area if any and where they are. He mountain bikes too but is not a member here so I thought I would. Thanks.

    There are a plethora of trails in Michaux, which is past Caledonia on Rt. 233.

    Southern Michaux is in your friend's backyard. Lots of trails around Old Forge, Mont Alto, Caledonia, etc. Nothing is marked so be prepared to explore.

    Sounds like fun. He is moving to Waynesboro this weekend so hopefully in a couple weeks after he is settled I can get up there and we can go exploring.

    Mont Alto in Michaux is just up the road past the Penn State Mont Alto campus. Its a little tricky to find trails unless you know the area but defiantly premium mountain biking.

    Locals

    Hook up with these guys.
    Several locals live in Waynesboro.
    Southern Michaux is the best riding around! Be prepared for rocks and tight single-track.

    The hub cycle center in Hagerstown was the best shop relatively nearby in my experience.

    Micheaux State Forest is a treasure for mountain biking. I think I've become a local regular there since living in this area for 8 years. I've even gotten to know some of the rangers, one of them helped me once when I had a flat.

    I don't actually know many trails south of route 30, I'm only now starting to explore the southern part of the region, starting with fire roads. I know one trail at Mont Alto, and the one at Teaberry where one of the Micheaux Endurance Series races started.

    What everyone else said. Just go up 233 from Caladonia and find a trail head. There are many parking spots the entire way up thorugh Michaux.
    Closer would be starting from Mont Alto area from Waynesboro though.

    Also, Gettysburg Bicycle and Fintess is a great local shop.
    Check out the Michaux encurance series, 2nd race is in 2-3 weeks! They are great for Beginers (like myself) and Experts alike.

    Thanks, but I am already back in Arizona.

    I DID find a trail up there that I think might be part of the series trails. I rode from a parking area on Road 16 south down some very rocky single track (I saw a sign with a black diamond on it) toward the reservoir, it dumped me out at the north side of a large earthen dam. Lot's of upper body workout with all the rocks!

    It was hot and humid, but enjoyable.
    Getting out there one day at a time.
