I just started riding about a month ago and am picking up this mt bike stuff pretty quick. I have been riding at middle creek (elders run trail, horse shoe, mill stone, etc..) and recently found out about the pumping station. I rode twice and got lost once and had to back track to get out. Does anyone have a map or are willing to ride with me? Do they really fine people if they are on the wrong trails? I usually go by myself which is probably not smart but I always have fun.

Customer Service

they all look the same to me.

This is a note to all the locals that ride the Brickerville area. Be very careful of riding in the game lands, as the game commision has closed a lot of the more popular access trails, and are "gunning" for us. Just be more creative in how you get to the deeper trails that are open, and stay off of "Little Canaan", they are really watching that trail. The fine is steep, and they are not messing around.

the SGL on the other side of 322 has many great downhills but doing laps is a pain (very long fire road or climb 1 of the downhills)

If at all possible, try to find your way up to the fire tower at the top of the ridge on the south side of Rt. 322. The small firetower has a barbed wire fence around it and a small cabin about 50 ft from it. In between the cabin and the tower is a trailhead. Ride it!! Cross over the gravel road half way down and continue on the singletrack until you reach the paved road. While following the paved road, make a left at the bottom of the long hill and follow this road back to rt. 322

Customer Service

In addition to riding in the boy scout camp as described above, excellent riding can be found on the other side of Rt. 322

The trails are pretty easy uphill, nothing extremely tough or technical. Downhill an be easy to extreme, there are some pretty potent rocky downhills which are great for tehnical riders. Red sand a lot of the trails if wet gets kind of crappy. Always fun to ride in mud and wet onditions but this sand can mess components up so make sure your bike is lubed and prepared. If onditions are dry, no worries, it stays packed down pretty good. Have fun!

Customer Service

The parking lot is on Pumping Station road on the right side of 322, if traveling west. One parked backtrack on your bikes to the trail entrane on the other side of the creek (Hammer Creek). Once you enter here do what you can to not get lost, so many different trails, but a great time! Ride a couple of times and find your own personal route.

The Horseshoe trail has a great amount of both single-track and technical riding areas. Lots of firm rocks for high speed descents. Some tricky areas but mostly a moderate sloped trail. From beginning to end it takes about 45 min.to ride at a moderate pace.

Customer Service

Facing the North side of Rt.322,take the trail to the right side of the Hammercreek river- follow this trail straight, for approx. 3 miles until you get to a steep sandy road running right and left. Go right to the top of the hill until you see a sign for "Horseshoe Trail" on your right. Take that trail. (It will eventually lead you back to the parking lot if you go straight.)

I would also recommend the other half of the Horseshoe trail beginning at the top of the South mountain Fire Tower road and making its way to the pumping station road.

I rode this trail for the first time. Very nice mixture of long rides, uphills and technical downhills. I recommend riding the fireroads to the top and taking the trails heading toward the rocks. Ask anyone riding there how to find the rocks. This trail is awesome, not recommended for people without atleast front suspension.

Be sure to sign in at the ranger station. They like to know who is out on the trails. They will also provide a much needed map, as this place encompasses several private and public grounds depending on the season.

Wear your orange outfit if you venture into the public hunting grounds. I don't know of anyone being shot, but this is PA :)

The riding on the side of the mountain opposite the boy scout camp is excellent. I highly recommend crossing 322 for the more challenging riding. Definitely recommending taking an entire day to explore all of the trails on both sides of 322.

Customer Service

park in the pumping station parking lot, enter trail to the left of the entrance. Follow trail parallel to 322. Cross 322 and head up the steep hill to the fire road. Take any trail head off the fire road down the hill.
