Maudslay State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Maudslay State Park offers a relaxing place to ride with a number of natural sights not found in other parts of the state. The American bald eagle nests here during the winter months. A portion of the park remains closed to the public so that this majestic creature can reside undisturbed. Trail maps indicate where the nesting areas are, and riding trails intentionally follow the contours of the closed areas just so trail users can peer into the bird's habitat.

The park offers a calm, flowing surface that could be ridden on a hybrid without difficulty. some trail surfaces are loose, but it's not slippery gravel or sand. A mulch and wood-chip layer helps maintain the paths and keeps water from rutting the trails. The hill grades here are very moderate, and the only real steep area, the Punchbowl, is closed to all visitors. Terrain: Packed dirt doubletrack with an occasional rock or root. a minimal amount of singletrack and some grass fields. Mulch and bark are present on some trails to fill in holes and deter erosion."
