“A recommended loop ride at Codorus State Park MTB Trails.
— Chris Cue
Wear bright colored clothing during hunting season. Check PA DCNR for dates.
This is a fun loop that takes advantage of the park's singletrack. Riders will find flow, roots, jumps, punchy climbs, switchbacks, and a good helping of flow!
Need to Know
This is a a great network of trails to dial in your skills including some jumps and drops on Trail #1
and Trail #4
. This route is fun in the reverse too, there is just more climbing.
Take Trail #1
(follow the description) to Trail A
. This a descent followed by a moderate to easy climb that will take you to Trail #2
. This will end at a wider XC trail which is Trail A2
. Follow this to the Trail #2 Extension
. This is a nice, short descent with a little flow.
Turn left and continue with a short climb on Trail #3A
looking for a righthand turn and steep descent on Trail #3
at the sledding hill. Bear right on Trail #3
as it climbs and descends Trail #5
, bringing you back out to the cemetery and Trail #3A
Take the now familiar Trail #3A
back to Trail #3
and the top of the sledding hill. Climb to Trail #4
, but this time continue to the right for a short climb followed by a short, twisty section that will take you to Stone Road. Go directly across for the last section of Trail #4
that leads back to the parking lot. Have fun!
