Known primarily for its rich equestrian heritage, the Fair Hill area does not conjure up images of mountain biking.

I make the trip down to Fair Hill from South Jersey all the time. There are other places inteh area like Middle Run & Iron Hill, but I love the flow of Fair Hill. I cam here first in 1999 and I have been making multilpe trips yearly. It is mainly XC and it could be an endurance test if you choose to link all the trails into one ride.
