“A-line is a magic carpet ride descent with drops, table tops, berms and rollers. Know your ability!”
— Fred Moreadith
Even though there is one Red 2-Diamond feature, each obstacle has a go-around or roller that can be executed with guidance. Parental supervision of youngsters is required, as various obstacles exist.
This trail is great in all weather conditions, but use in wet weather should be restricted. The trail dries very quickly after rain, so use good judgement.
Difficulty restrictions are required, as well. Each obstacle or drop has a ride-around or alternate route. New users and Intermediate level riders should proceed with caution and inspect the trail prior to attempting obstacles and features. Helmets are required and pads are suggested, as well.
The Mt. Penn Preserve can be accessed from several Parking areas/Trail Heads. See Parking listed on the map. This Trail is best accessed via the parking area at the William Penn Fire Tower.
The directional A-line Trail is considered an expert level trail, although riders with less experience can execute this one if they're looking to build their skills.
Riders should expect rocky terrain mixed in with a few steep sections. This trail also contains over 15 man-made obstacles, including drops with go-arounds, table tops, rollers and berms. These can all be rolled or jumped according to the riders' ability level. The Blue Square difficulty designation is assuming the user will roll and/or progress on these obstacles. Many are Black Diamond level, with one Red Double Diamond Drop. Look before you leap!
Adult supervision of children is necessary on all trails and obstacles on the Mt. Penn Preserve Trail system.
