Once the site of a large mining operation, Iron Hill Park's334 acres now lie alongside the hustle and bustle of Interstate 95. Many of the old mining pits now offer mountain bikers trails that are laced with roller-coaster hills and BMX jumps. A good example is the Mega-Dip: a 40-foot drop into an old abandoned iron mining pit. This is an excellent short ride. There are many spur trails that connect with the main blaze trails. Feel free to explore these if you want to add riding time. This ride takes a tour around the longer trails in the park. First time visitors can easily get confused with all of the spur trails shooting off from the main trails. But don't worry; it's very hard to get lost in the park. The spur trails either dead-en or eventually lead back to the main trails. Terrain: Mostly tight singletrack and wide doubletrack trails, with some short, rocky sections. Some wild BMX-type sections are off the main trails.
