anyone ride this place or know the trail system? i am headed down to philly next weekend to see coldplay in concert and meet up with my sister who lives in down there. I was hoping on checking out Wiss, Ive had a look at the PHILLYMTB site, so thats a start..but any other 411 on the trails would be appreciated.

thanks in advance

i used to ride here every tuesday,when make delirveries to chinatown.
it's a cool 12mile loop if u riding from the park entrance,..but if u riding from downtown philly around 20mile.
this is a largest inner city in america so they say.

the trails marked very well,...lots of climb/downhill as weel depending on wich way you're started the ride.
there's a climb section (switchback climb) about 4 times turn(switchback) to climb this rocky little hill(or down if you coming from other direction)

you can ride this trail vice versa.
