As suggested, here is what I compiled quickly, so that others that need trail info can know where to look and who to ask. Please feel free to add other trail systems that I have forgotten. Additionally, I can add trail info to this post if requested. Please note that some of the "conditions" threads don't exist or don't really mention conditions at first, but hopefully they will be updated as needed.

There is no need to post actual trail conditions or reviews in this thread, as it will become much too cumbersome to use. I will see about getting this thread stickied.

*Disclaimer* I realize there are probably a ton of smaller trail systems that I have left out. Don't worry, I will add them at your request!

I will be the first to say: "AWESOME"

I commend you!

I vote for STICKY

I have emailed my support

Hi Greg

I support the SEPA master thread that RoyDean has posted as I always dreamed we could have a sticky for each corner of our state. I hope you will consider this for a sticky as it will help lots of people looking for info. I know our NEPMTBA sticky has greatly made finding info much easier for people without have to hit "Search" and looking through many posts.

Thanks for MTBR and all you do to make our world better

Lee Curry

I am going to visit family for the holidays and was searching for riding areas. My family lives in the Breinigsville and New Triploli areas. I have tried searching, but could not find anything closer than Emmaus. Is there anything out there? Thanks and have a great Thanksgiving!

Emmaus is the closest trailsytem to Breiningsville, but there is active building going on at the Trexler Nature Preserve in Schnecksville. The trailsystem isn't done yet, but that place has the potential to become the next Raystown style area in PA. Details are on bikevmb.com. If you are going to drive to the trails I would recommend checking out Sals before Emmaus. There is more legal riding there and the flow is better.

Know the intention is for "SE" Pa but since White Clay, DE is mentioned how 'bout adding Fairhill, MD to it? Only a couple of miles apart and SO many SE Pa riders visit it.
Just a thought.
Thanks!
Great idea to "Sticky" this thread. Thanks for taking the time to collect all of the info. and post! :thumbsup:
