The video's don't do justice to

.....how hard some of the moves were...especially knowing that Taco brought a few of the riders through the "Dakar" race route to get to Snappers.....at that point they must have been pretty tired already......here is a couple pics : This is the beginning of the ride for me :.Zen worship house and our four legged friend we saw on Snapper 2 at about 10am in the morning...thought these things were nocturnal.

These trails are located in Mountain Top, Pa. There is no official trail map available online, not that I am aware of anyway. If you are interested in checking out these trails I would suggest posting here when you will be in the area or keep an eye out for group rides. There is usually a ride on Saturday and/or Sunday, with the occasional ride in the evening during the week.

Yeah, the Snapper trails are not far from Penn Lake and can be accessed from Tunnel Road. But the Snappers are only a small section of the vast trail system in Mountain Top. They connect to trails on the other side of rt437 and beyond.

I recently moved to NEPA from NJ and would love to hook up with you guys and check out some of the local trails, I'm very interested in this "snapper" section since I have frequently stay with friends on Tunnel Road. I do most of my current riding at Allamuchy, NJ because it's such a great park, and I know my way around there. Please PM me so I can make plans to ride some of these NEPA trails with you guys. Thanks :thumbsup:
