“Green Lane Park - Loop Around Reservoir”
Carl Alexander on Mar 25, 2013
Getting There     GPX File     Print
10.5 Miles 0% Singletrack 706’ Ascent -714’ Descent 221’ Low 415’ High
Restrictions
This is a county park, hunting is never allowed.
Overview
This is a multi-use trail system but most equestrians stick to the wider trails through the fields. As a result those trails are usually pretty beat up but the singletrack stays in pretty good shape. Great views of the reservoir abound on this ride, some of the best are from the overlooks off the Red Trail.
Description
This is the main loop around the reservoir.

Start on the Blue trail and the hardest riding in the park with lots of loose rocks and some steep grades. There are only a couple of big climbs/descents though. You'll also encounter some technical bits, mostly around creek crossings in the bottom of the ravines.

Use the Perkiomen Trail around the south end of the reservoir to connect to the Red Trail. This easy section is flat and flowy with a few roots and logs.

There are some spots with drainage problems that can remain wet for a long time.

Got muddier the farther you go from the reservoir. Trails by the water were in good shape though.
