Core Creek - TRAIL

Core Creek - Trail, Langhorne, Pennsylvania

Core Creek trails are at Core Creek park. There are about 8-1/2 total miles of trails. Most of the terrain is flat, with an occasional short climb. There are many stream crossings that have bridges, there are many log roll-overs, there are a few whoop-di-doos. It is a nice trail for beginner riders and is kept in decent shape. There are a few trail heads to start at, one is at the ball fields where Woodbourne road is, go to the pavillion and head towards the woods, you''ll find it. You can also start at the woods next to Maple Point Middle School-the trail crosses over woodbourne Rd and into Core Creek Park. There is another trail head that starts near where the dam is for the lake. You would acces that from Bridgetown pike Rd, go into the park and make a right into the first parking area past the ranger station. The trail head is at the end of the parking lot.

Let me preface by saying this is my favorite place to ride, not just because of the trail, but the people who ride it and maintain it almost religiously.

I've never done all the trails in the park, but usually the loop I do puts me around 7 miles. In that time, you will cross many bridges, ride many log-overs, traverse some roots, and have a good mix of climbs and descents. There are some little jumps, and good twists and turns as well. There's really a good flow in this place, where you can pick up speed and carry it. For almost every log-over, there is usually a way to get around it, if you want to bring someone who is not as experienced with you.

Trails are usually very well maintained and groomed, there is a group of people who are doing work in there almost weekly.

lots of fun , it is very well maintained and each of the three loops offer you something alittle different. Dirt is hard packed with a good amount of log overs without disrupting the flow. A few wooden bridges and a few root filled sections. Really like this place. Lots of deer in the woods also

Great trail that has something for most skill levels. Very rooty in certain spots and a good number of log piles. There is one decent into a creek that leads to a quick climb over conder blocks. It is tough, especially with wet wheels. At the fartherst point of the park there is a great, long downhill wind with about 6 ramps.

Enter the park off Woodbourne road across from Maple Point School. Follow the road all the way to the end of the park by the final baseball field. There is a small hill leading into a rock bridge that gets you into the trail. You immediately have to make a right or left. Right is the easier side of the park and left is the more technical.

I was out in this park today and I was surprised with the quality of trails (although the mud was pretty deep in some of the sections). Somebody has been putting some time into this park to make it more mtb friendly. Thanks. Many stream crossings/ log overs in park. There is also a fast downhill section towards the back of the park (by the middle school) that has a bunch of jumps throughout. Pretty fun in a bmx kinda way. This place is a perfect afterwork loop.

Customer Service

When entering park from Bridgetown Pike. Park at the last stone lot on the left prior to crossing the dam. Start riding back up from where you came from and duck into the singletrack on the right. I found two loops in this park. One is off to the right by the middle school and the other hugs the lake. I recorded around 7.5 miles on the two loops.

I'm no off road aficionado but I think these trails are great. I live in Newtown and have been looking for some off road trails that I don't need to pack the bike in the car to get to and these are the only ones around that I have found. These are great for a short after work or weekend ride when I only have a hour or 2. I would not call these "a ride in the park". There are some technical sections that require some finese. They are fairly well maintained although some of the less used trails get overgrown. My rating of 4 is partly based on proximity to me.

Customer Service

Since I ride from my house, I jump onto the trail directly off Woodbourne Road just south of the resevoir. It is pretty much just one big loop with some cross over trails and some off shoots. There are no trail markers. I'd like to find a map if one exists.

Similar Products Used: Penny Pack park in North Philly has a great trail system. I hear there are some decent trails over by Neshaminy High School but have not tried them. Same with Mercer County Park in NJ.
