Trail shared by Frank Maguire

The first loop at Swatara State Park.

Frank Maguire

Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed

Features -none-

Although its not a very developed park, PA State Park rules are enforced. No drinking and no dogs off leash.

Description

A nice tight and twisty introduction to Swatara State Parks trail system. Several log challenges and lots of roots along with twisting bench cut really forces you to pay attention. The trail can be ridden in either direction, but going counter-clockwise might be the preferred way.
